Faculty and staff from the Elliott School of Communication (ESC) at Wichita State University won a CLARUS Award from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Kansas Chapter for their 2010 Elliott Engage social media campaign.

The team consisted of ESC’s director of technology, Kevin Keplar; ESC instructor Eric Wilson; ESC Director Susan Huxman; and Mike Rishell, director of development for the WSU Foundation.

They received the honor at PRSA's annual CLARUS Awards ceremony held on Tuesday, May 24, at the Wichita Boathouse.

Keplar was the principal contributor to the Elliott Engage campaign and the named recipient of the award.
