Pat Patillo, APR, Fellow PRSA, passed away during the holidays

It is with sadness that I must share the news that Pat Pattillo, APR, Fellow PRSA, passed away during the holidays. A memorial service celebrating Pat's life will be held on Saturday, January 9 at 11 a.m. at the Baptist Church of the Covenant in Birmingham.

An active member of PRSA since 1977, Pat returned to Birmingham in 2011 upon his retirement from the National Council of Churches USA in New York City. He was our chapter’s only Fellow PRSA and an amazing PR professional and person.
