On Wednesday, Nov. 16, PRSSN President Jennifer Gallo was honored with the May C. Randazzo Memorial Scholarship Award at the PRSA Buffalo-Niagara Annual Meeting Celebration. The award recognizes an undergraduate student who has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the field of public relations.
Taking the podium to present the award, Dr. Joseph M. Sirianni – Gallo’s academic advisor and PRSSN co-advisor – made note of Gallo’s achievement in leadership, scholarship and community service.
Gallo expressed her gratitude for receiving the award and thanked Sirianni, her parents, and the May C. Randazzo Memorial Scholarship committee for honoring her.
May C. Randazzo served as the public relations manager at Graphic Controls and helped form the PRSSA chapter at Canisius College before she died after a brief illness in 1997 at the age of 57. The May C. Randazzo Memorial Scholarship was established in her honor to award college students who best demonstrated the values that Randazzo believed were key aspects to a successful career in public relations.
