Cathy Rogers, Ph. D., was recently recognized by the Public Relations Association of Louisiana as the 2012 State Educator of the Year in public relations. The Public Relations Association of Louisiana is a professional association and networking organization. The new award honors faculty members who teach public relations, journalism or communications, and was presented at a ceremony last week. “I feel very honored to be recognized,” Rogers said, “I love my work as a professor and feel lucky to have such a rewarding career.” Rogers will represent Louisiana in the Southern Public Relations Federation Educator of the year competition.
