Tina Hay, Editor of The Penn Stater Magazine – April PR Series Speaker
The Media Savvy Public Relations Seminar Series Session for April will feature Tina Hay, Editor of The Penn Stater Magazine. Ms. Hay’s magazine has won nearly two dozen awards for its honest and unflinching coverage of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal at Penn State University. Her session for the Public Relations Seminar will focus on how an alumni magazine, and its online blog, were able to address a crisis with a candor that people don’t usually expect from an institutional publication.
Ms. Hay possesses a bachelor’s degree in Management from Penn State University where she also worked for thirteen years doing communications for the university’s College of Health and Human Development. She has been editor of The Penn Stater since 1996.
The Media Savvy Public Relations Seminar Series was developed to provide a thorough understanding and application of public relations techniques as it spans an impressive range of topics from Public Relations 101 to development of your own media plan. The series will run monthly (on the 3rd Thursday) through September.
This session of the Public Relations series will be held on April 18th from 9 am to 11 am at the Raystown Lake Region Visitor’s Center at Seven Points of Raystown Lake. The cost to attend the session is $15 for members of Huntingdon County Business and Industry, Chamber of Commerce or Visitors Bureau, and $25 for non-members. The session will include a continental breakfast courtesy of Standing Stone Coffee Company of Huntingdon.
