Seton Hall University's Chapter of the Public Relations Student
Society of America (PRSSA) has selected Ashley Manz, Account Executive
and Social Media Coordinator at Beckerman Public Relations in
Hackensack, NJ, as the 2013 recipient of its coveted ROPE in Success
Award. Named after the four parts of a public relations campaign
(Research, Objectives, Programming and Evaluation), the annual award
acknowledges one tri-state area professional who has shared exceptional
mentoring and support with Seton Hall University public relations
students, interns and graduates. The award will be presented to Manz at
the ROPE in Success Event at 6:30 pm on April 18 in the
University’s Chancellor's Suite in Seton Hall's University
Center at 400 South Orange Avenue, South Orange, NJ.
Manz, a recent graduate of Seton Hall and the University’s PRSSA
chapter president during the 2012-2013 academic year, joined the
Beckerman Public Relations team last year and has garnered media
placements in national, regional and local print, broadcast and online
media. During her term as chapter president, she helped complete Seton
Hall’s application for Certification in Education for Public Relations
(CEPR) from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
Seton Hall University's 2013 ROPE in Success event also celebrates the
University receiving this international accreditation. The CEPR
acknowledges Seton Hall as one of the best places to study public
relations in the world.
"It is a true honor to be given the ROPE in Success award, especially
during this accreditation year," said Manz. "As someone who benefited
greatly from the great mentoring and wisdom that I received at Seton
Hall and through PRSSA, I continue to work with the organization and
with the University so that I can do my best to help current students
learn and grow."
Past honorees of the ROPE in Success award include Sandra Maloney,
Assistant Director of Seton Hall's Career Center (2012), Josh Balber of
the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (2011), Joan Bosisio of Stern +
