Eastern Michigan University continues to remember Dr. Melissa Faulkner Motschall, APR, a former EMU professor who taught public relations and created EMU’s PRSSA Chapter. Motschall was known as both an outstanding teacher and public relations professional whose efforts touched and inspired countless students and fellow professionals. Many of her students went on to successful careers in corporations, public relations agencies, nonprofit organizations, health care and education. As part of the EMICH Public Relations community, students are encouraged to care for others and give back.
This year the Eastern Michigan University’s Interdisciplinary Public Relations Major Undergraduate Scholarship returns with a one-time award of $596. Students applying for the award must be undergraduate majors in public relations with a grade point average of at least 3.0 and demonstrate financial need.
To commemorate Dr. Motschall’s dedication to EMU, a short essay of no more than 1,000 words is required describing the importance of caring for others, giving back to one’s community and how the two characteristics connect to the field of public relations. To prepare for the essay, first read the memorial on Dr. Motschall and reference her accomplishments and how you believe they advanced the field of PR and humanity in general. Dr. Motschall’s memorial can be found at https://emuprssa.com/about-2/in-remembrance/.
