Owensboro Public Schools’ Public Information Officer, Jared Revlett, has been named as one of the Top 35 School PR Professionals Under 35 by the National School Public Relations Association.
Every other year, the NSPRA 35 Under 35 program recognizes young professional members who are making a difference for their school districts or education-related employers. This year marks the fifth NSPRA class of 35 Under 35. This group of emerging leaders is proving that strategic communication is timeless, extending easily to our next generation of school public relations professionals.
“I am humbled and honored to receive this award from the national organization,” said Revlett. “When I got involved with the Kentucky chapter of the School Public Relations Association, I had no idea how valuable those partnerships would be for me, especially as our district navigated the COVID pandemic. I could not have earned this award without the partnerships both locally and statewide, but also with districts across the country as well.”
Revlett was the only honoree from Kentucky this year and the third to have received the award. Revlett currently serves as the Vice President of the Kentucky School Public Relations Association in addition to his duties as the Public Information Officer for Owensboro Public Schools. His communication and messaging during the COVID-19 pandemic has been used by school districts nationwide as well as local health departments and state departments of education.
Members of the 35 Under 35 classes have contributed to NSPRA in various helpful ways. Many serve, plan to serve, or have served as chapter officers. Some write for our Social School PR blog, have presented at NSPRA Seminars, or participated as panelists for our PR Power Hours. Their insight is invaluable in keeping NSPRA on the forefront of school public relations.
“This award is a testament to the critical communication work Jared does for not only the Owensboro Public Schools, but for many regional and state counterparts as well,” said OPS Superintendent Dr. Matthew Constant. “ Jared has an innate ability to synthesize all the information into what can be easily understood. His daily contributions are invaluable to our organization.”
The 35 Under 35 honorees will be presented with their award at the National School Public Relations Conference in New Orleans this summer. More information about the recipients and the award can be found at nspra.org/35-under-35-program.
