Local PR Professional One of Eleven in Nation Selected into PR College of Fellows

    Kevin Gaydosh, APR, Fellow PRSA was one of 11 new members elected into the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) prestigious College of Fellows on July 19, 2017. Gaydosh serves as director of public relations/strategic planner for O’Brien et al Advertising based in Virginia Beach.

    The College of Fellows is an honorary organization with PRSA comprised of more than 350 senior practitioners and educators, each of whom has left a significant footprint on the public relations profession. To qualify for admittance, a public relations practitioner or educator must have at least 20 years of experience, hold the Accredited in Public Relations (APR) credential and have demonstrated exceptional capability and accomplishment in the practice or teaching of public relations. Fewer than two percent of PRSA members are accepted into the College of Fellows.

    Gaydosh is recognized in the Hampton Roads public relations community for being an extremely principled person who displays the highest ethical standards. In addition to his professional work, Gaydosh has twice served as president for the Hampton Roads Chapter of PRSA as well as chair of the PRSA Mid-Atlantic District and secretary of the PRSA District Council. He was a charter sponsor of the PRSA student chapter at Old Dominion University. Gaydosh displays a powerful sense of community and provides pro bono services not only to the local PRSA chapter, but also to the Surfing Legends of ECSC, the American Red Cross and his neighborhood civic league.

    “To receive one of our profession’s highest honors is very humbling.  I’ve learned much from having worked alongside some of the best PR minds in this market,” states Gaydosh.

    Gaydosh will be welcomed into the College of Fellows officially on Oct. 7, in Boston, at a special ceremony and dinner.
