PR Student Wins National Award

Jessica Estrada, a senior from Duncanville, Texas, recently won a Zenith Award in one of the top national public relations contests for undergraduate students.

Estrada is an officer in OC’s chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America. She interned at the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas over the summer.

“Jessica is one of our most dedicated and conscientious students,” said Josh Watson, assistant professor of communication. “We are not surprised that her work was recognized as the best among her peers across the nation.”

This is the second straight year an OC student has received one of the seven awards at the national competition. Last year, Joshua Richardson won the award for PR Writing.
