The Central West Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (CWC-FPRA) installed its 2021-2022 board of directors and recognized outstanding members during the Chapter Awards & Board Installation held at LWR's The Grove. The event, which continued the honored tradition of the passing of the gavel by former presidents of CWC-FPRA, was a celebration of the past year of successes and opportunities for the coming year. 

The following members were honored during the program:  Sheryl Vieira was named Member of the Year; Laitin Sterling, APR, earned the Ginya Carnahan Promoting the Profession Award; Hunter Carpenter earned the Thomas Nunan Rising Star Award; Erin Hoffer, APR, CPRC, earned the Ginnie Duffey Troyer Award of Professionalism; and Stephannie Kettle and Andrea Knies, APR, each received Transform Awards for going above and beyond their board duties throughout the year.

Additionally, the board celebrated some highlights from the recent FPRA Annual Conference in Orlando. During the conference, CWC-FPRA earned chapter awards for its financial management and networking leadership. Two board members were also recognized for graduating from this year’s LeadershipFPRA program: Melanie Reda, APR, CPRC, and Sheryl Vieira.

“The energy and grit shown by our chapter board of directors this past year, through one of the most difficult times in our history, was inspiring,” said Kouvatsos, APR. “While it’s been an honor to serve as chapter president, I’m thrilled to have passed the gavel to Melanie Reda, APR, CPRC, whose graceful professionalism and leadership has already begun shining through in her new role as president. The best is yet to come.”

The Central West Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association meets monthly for professional development luncheons and networking. Visit cwcfpra.com for more information.
