NAPRCA celebrates the achievements of Loura “Keelyn” Sealy in our first member spotlight of 2022.
Keelyn’s name may be familiar as she was the recipient of NAPRCA’s 2021 Michael K. Simmons Memorial Scholarship. Keelyn received a $2,000 tuition scholarship to contribute to her studies at the University of North Alabama (UNA).
Keelyn is a junior at UNA where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications with a focus in Public Relations. She serves as an ambassador for the university as a member of the LaGrange Society and is the Welcome Warrior for the University Program Council. Keelyn is involved in many academic associations and clubs on campus, including UNA Public Relations – Lion PR, UNA’s student public relations organization. Keelyn is currently using her talents as an intern with the Shoals Chamber of Commerce and we are sure a bright career is ahead of her.
2021 VP of Students, Rylee Lefevre said of Keelyn:
“As a well-rounded student with a heart for service, Keelyn is very deserving of this scholarship. On behalf of NAPRCA and the scholarship selection committee, we are delighted to award Keelyn with this academic honor and provide the opportunity for her to continue pursuing her degree in public relations.”
Keelyn shared a note of thanks to NAPRCA, which reads: “Thank you so much for choosing me to be this year’s recipient of the Michael K. Simmons Memorial Scholarship! I am so honored and blessed to receive this award. I truly appreciate you contributing to my future success by allowing me to continue my education.”
