MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Hello,

In December we said goodbye to Mitch Edwards, APR, who served as our chapter president in 2008 and most recently as chair of the PRSA Southeast District.

Less than a week before he passed, Mitch spoke at our PRSA Board Retreat. I knew he would guide and inspire. And he did not disappoint.

In four simple words, Mitch encapsulated a mantra we should all carry, not only in service, but in life: “Make it your own.”

Mitch told the incoming board to learn from, but not be dominated by, the past. He encouraged us all to take our new positions and make our own imprint on the job and our own impact in the PRSA world. The perfect message from the visionary who pushed to expand PRSSA chapters beyond Birmingham schools and co-founded what is now the PRSA Summit.

In honor of Mitch, the Alabama chapter of PRSA’s theme for 2015 is “Make it your own.” The board will keep this in mind in everything we do for you and for others. We encourage you to do the same. Make your world a better place. Make it your own. 

Mitch was only 47 when he passed away yet he had accomplished so much in life. There is no way to capture the essence and impact of Mitch in this brief space so I ask you to read his obituary posted on AL.com.

Kind regards,
Kevin Storr, APR
Alabama PRSA President
