Detroit PR Society recognizes EMU student as "rising star"

Stephanie Scheer is more than an up-and-comer in the public relations world, she's a "Rising Star" in the eyes of the Public Relations Society of America.

The society's Detroit Chapter honored the Eastern Michigan University senior late last year after she demonstrated "exceptional ability, professionalism and achievement" during her internship at Henry Ford Health System.

The public relations major is the president of the EMU chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America. As proof of her developing spin skills, she provided this quote to Eastern's PR team.

"It's an honor to have received the Rising Star Award from PRSA- Detroit as a student at EMU and Henry Ford's intern," Scheer said in a press release. "At Henry Ford Health System, I have the ability to take the lessons I have learned in the classroom and see how they apply to the corporate public relations environment."

Scheer is set to graduate and join the legions of PR flaks this spring.
