The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) will start a new chapter at Vanguard University that will empower students with professional connections including speakers, networking opportunities and career mentoring. Vanguard will be one of 26 universities in California with this prestigious opportunity. 

Jennifer Heinly, an adjunct at Vanguard, will serve as the faculty advisor for the PRSSA Chapter at Vanguard. She has over 30 years of experience in public relations and marketing. Her current and former clients cover a spectrum of industries, including health care, legal, publishing and sports marketing. 

“We are thrilled that Vanguard University has been approved to start a PRSSA Chapter,” Heinly said. “As a long-time PRSA member, I know firsthand how invaluable a student’s PRSSA membership can be in their development and career opportunities. I was a PRSSA member at California State University, Fullerton many years ago, which led to several internships and ultimately my first job after graduation. I would like thank Naomi Kasa, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Department of Communication, for helping to lead the PRSSA student chapter initiative at our university.” 

Vanguard is so thankful for this privilege in starting this new chapter with PRSSA. We recognize this endeavor as an opportunity to empower and connect tomorrow’s leaders in the communication field.
