Why I Give: Lynne Sallot

Name: Lynne M. Sallot, Ph.D., APR, Fellow PRSA

Position: Professor Emerita, Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor, Public Relations, Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication

At UGA: 24 years

Beneficiary of her gift to the university: Grady College Public Relations Education Fund

Why she contributes: “The PR Education Fund provides travel support for our PR students to participate in national and regional professional conferences. These networking opportunities help our students get internships and jobs. My gifts to the fund have been a natural extension of my commitment to teaching at UGA. When I retired in June, my Grady colleagues and friends in the PR profession contributed more than $5,000 in my name to the fund. That was the best retirement gift ever!”
