Public Relations Society of America Boston Chapter Awards $2,000 Scholarship to Bentley Senior Amanda Healy
Bentley senior Amanda Healy received a $2,000 scholarship from the Boston Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). Healy will graduate in December with a bachelor's degree in marketing and a minor in information design and corporate communications.
The scholarship committee chose Healy for not only her academic achievements and professionalism, but also her ambition and passion for the public relations field. While at Bentley, she worked part time at Racepoint Group, a global public relations agency specializing in digital media relations, and in summer 2009 for Plymouth Rock Studios, a film and television studio complex slated to open next year in Plymouth, Mass.
"I want to challenge the way people think," Healy noted in her scholarship application. "I'm ready to chart new territories and stake them as my own."
The Yawkey Foundations have recognized Bentley University’s longstanding commitment to service-learning and awarded the university $500,000 to educate students to effectively lead nonprofit organizations and expand student efforts to help community groups.
