This is a news release from the University of Southern Mississippi

Former University of Southern Mississippi graduate student Jasmine Tate has been selected to receive the prestigious National Gold Key Award from the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). She will be honored during the group’s national conference in October.

The award recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding academic excellence in public relations and leadership qualities in PRSSA. It is the highest individual honor bestowed upon members.

“PRSSA has played a major role in my development, education, and connections throughout the last five years,” said Tate. “I started a chapter during my undergraduate career and continued involvement while pursuing my master’s degree at USM. Knowing that the hard work and dedication I’ve contributed to the organization, my alma maters, and students has been recognized and appreciated is an amazing feeling.”

A Mt. Hermon, La., native, Tate earned her undergraduate degree in Communication from Southeastern Louisiana University in 2014 and her master’s degree in Public Relations from Southern Miss in May of this year.

Tate currently resides in Hattiesburg and works as a sales specialist at Kohl’s department store. She remains active in the Pine Belt Chapter of the Public Relations Association of Mississippi, while authoring a weekly blog "Welcome to the Real World."

As she continues to pursue opportunities as a community relations professional, Tate has her career sights set on working in that field for a professional sports organization.
