Public Relations Association Awards Robinson

Gettysburg Area School District’s (GASD) Communications Coordinator,

Andrew P. Robinson, received the 35 Under 35 award by the National School Public Relations

Association (NSPRA).

Every other year, according to NSPRA, the 35 Under 35 program recognizes young

professional members who are making a difference for their school districts. This group of

emerging leaders is proving that strategic communication is timeless, extending easily to our

next generation of school public relations professionals.

“I’m very humbled to receive this award,” Robinson said. “Often the work of a

communications practitioner is overlooked. People expect timely, consistent and accurate

communications without giving a second thought to where it came from or the work it took

to create and perfect what we do. I’m honored to be recognized as an award-winning

communicator and I’m committed to continuing to provide my expertise in the years ahead.”

Robinson has worked with GASD since 2017 when he began as a communications consultant for the district before transitioning to a full-time role. During this time, Robinson has focused on sharing positive stories from around the district. Using a variety of mediums from videos to social media posts, this effort is a showcase to the community regarding how GASD’s students are succeeding in an ever-changing world.

Moreover, Mr. Robinson launched the GASD Glows program, an initiative to recognize

hard-working employees, volunteers and community partners who embody the district’s

mission and vision statements. In addition, he has taken on an enhanced leadership role in

communicating the educational changes as a result of the pandemic and created a

comprehensive communications plan for the district from the ground up.

To be an eligible member of the 35 Under 35 class, nominees must be age 35 or younger, have worked in school public relations for at least one year and be a professional member of

NSPRA. Members of the 35 Under 35 classes have contributed to NSPRA in various helpful

ways. Their insight is invaluable in keeping NSPRA at the forefront of school public relations,

NSPRA writes on its website.
