PR Student of the Year Award Sponsorship

This week, thousands of students will graduate from the University of Sunderland and we were happy to join in with the celebrations at the start of the week.

We were delighted to be able to sponsor the first ever award for Outstanding PR Student of the Year at the University.

Account Manager Anna-Maria Cooney attended Monday’s graduation ceremony at the Stadium of Light to present the award to this year’s recipient, Paule Stei.

The award recognised Paule for consistently demonstrating her ability to perform at a high level. As well as this award, she graduated with a First Class Public Relations degree and landed a full-time job in her dream career.

She said: “It was such a surprise and a great honour to receive this award and I really did struggle to hold back the tears when my name was read out. This award makes all the hard work and long hours all worthwhile.”

Such recognition is a fantastic achievement to leave University with and we wish Paule the best of luck in her future career.

We were really proud to sponsor this award as we now have four Sunderland PR graduates working in our team who are able to write great content for our clients with the skills they’ve gained on the course.
