According to the PRSSA national bylaws, each chapter must have both a Faculty Advisor and a Professional Advisor. It’s well known that our chapter’s Faculty Advisor is Dr. Dashiell, the Director of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. However, this year, Scripps PRSSA gained a new Professional Mentor. Hannah Schuller, an OU and Scripps PRSSA alumna, was elected to this role in September. I luckily had the chance to meet her when I attended one of OSU’s PRSSA meetings a few months ago, as she was one of their speakers. Hannah is a great resource for our chapter, and I highly recommend reaching out to her and getting to know her better! That being said, I want to share some background information about Hannah for those who haven’t yet had a chance to speak with her.
