Lynne Sallot, a public relations professor in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, received the 2014 Milestones in Mentoring Educator Award from the Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations.

Named in honor of public relations leader and educator Bruce K. Berger, the award recognizes educators who have been instrumental in mentoring students and future educators.

She joined the Grady College faculty in 1993 and served as faculty adviser of the UGA chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America from 1993-1999 and as faculty coordinator of the annual PR Day at Grady College from 1994 until 2001.
