Salute to Grady's Silver Anvil award winner

You probably know her as a researcher of social media, but Kaye Sweetser, Grady College faculty member, is also part of a team that won a PRSA Silver Anvil award in the crisis management (government) category. As a member of the U.S. naval reserve, Kaye worked with the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in the Middle East last summer.

Kaye (her blog here) was based in Bahrain as the acting Media Officer when she was assigned to the public affairs team during the evacuation of American citizens from Lebanon. Kaye says it was the largest sea-borne evacuation in U.S. history and tells us it "turned into an experience I often draw on when teaching my PR classes."

I'd say that one goes on this year's "Pride of Grady" list. :-)
