Wolf Earns State PR Award For Friendsgiving

Sophie McNeil Wolf holds her PRism Award.The Community Foundation for Mississippi’s Director of Communications and Insights, Sophie McNeil Wolf, was recently awarded a PRism Award (Short Term: Special Events) by the Public Relations Association of Mississippi for her contributions to CFM’s inaugural Friendsgiving event. The awards ceremony, held on May 20 in Ridgeland, recognizes outstanding work by Mississippians in public relations and celebrates select individuals for their contributions to the profession. The PRism Award is the top award for each category.

The PRism Awards program allows PRAM members to receive an unbiased evaluation of their work in various categories from campaigns to individual tactics. Award-winning entries are scored on their own merits, demonstrating knowledge and application of the four-step PR process, emphasizing research, planning, implementation and evaluation.

CFM was one of five organizations earning PRism Awards, placing them in the top 10 percent of projects as judged by the outside panel of PR professionals. Wolf’s work joins the ranks of the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, Jones Companies and others, also honored with PRism Awards.

Wolf also serves this year as the President of the Public Relations Association of Mississippi, Central Chapter.

“As a first year event, you are never sure how things will unfold. This team effort allowed us to visually show how CFM builds a bigger table and connect people from all walks of life together,” said Wolf. “We are looking forward to an even bigger celebration this year.”

Friendsgiving will return again this fall in November.
