The Talley Rising Star Award
Meet Beckie Brennan, named this month as the Talley Rising Star among state communications professionals. She's a dynamic and talented communicator, specializing in web development. I had the privilege of meeting Beckie on Wednesday, having breakfast with her and Amy Goddard, who leads the marketing and communications team at USAO.
The Talley Rising Star Award was created in 2013 by the Oklahoma College Public Relations Association to honor young professionals with ambition, discipline and character.
Outside of work, Beckie is married and volunteers her time generously. She helped to establish the Campus Co-op at USAO, an excellent charity helping students in need. Got winter coats to donate? Reach out to Beckie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Go Beckie!
I worked in higher education for 30 years at three different universities. I was honored beyond words when the OCPRA created an award with my name on it!
