Kwantlen Polytechnic University public relations student, Sarah Cruickshank, was awarded the highly coveted 2012 Dean Miller – Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) Scholarship during the CPRS Vancouver annual general meeting on June 5.

“The Dean Miller Scholarship is a special award within the industry, and a fantastic opportunity for emerging PR professionals, which is why it’s such an honour to be this year’s recipient,” says Cruickshank. “This award has allowed me the chance to network and learn from other professionals, utilize my PR skills and receive valuable feedback on my work samples. As a recent Kwantlen graduate this award will go a long way in setting me apart from my peers when applying for jobs.”

Kwantlen students have won the CPRS scholarship nine times out of the last 10 years – almost every year since the award was created.

The scholarship is given each year to the student who best exemplifies the highest values of the public relations profession through academic excellence and through voluntary and paid participation in the field.
