The panelists included:
Gary Sharp, Miracle Baseball, director of media relations/promotions and P.A. Announcer

Congratulations to faculty advisor Professor Susan Moniz and our Student Chapter on hitting a home run with this very successful event!
A number of FGCU FPRA students topped off the semester by attending the professional chapter's December meeting with guest speaker Sarah Owen, CEO of Community Cooperative Ministries, Inc. (CCMI). Students were able to network with professional members and hear Sarah's inspirational message about embracing challenges and failures and turning them around as learning lessons.
