In 1976, Professor Tony Fulginiti took his passion for public relations and established a PRSSA chapter at Rowan University. He saw this as an opportunity for public relations students to learn and grow in a professional setting and for Rowan to make a name for itself in the PR world. Forty years later, the Rowan PRSSA chapter is one of the most successful chapters in the nation. The Anthony Fulginiti Award was established to honor a public relations professional who shares Tony’s commitment to the
future of our profession. The award honors a person who excels in education, either through their mentoring/teaching, their efforts to help shape the careers of future PR professionals or their contributions to PRSSA.
