The Paragon Awards were created in 1983 and are given annually to honor local companies and individuals that exemplify excellence in communications. The awards recognize outstanding work in the area of public relations, honor creative and strategic superiority and encourage a higher level of performance among public relations professionals.
The chapter has selected Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, and David Fantle, deputy tourism secretary for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, to receive 2012 awards for individual public relations achievements. Still will receive the Paragon Communicator of the Year Award and Fantle will receive the Dorothy Thomas Black Award.
“Both honorees have made significant strides in advancing the success of their organizations and in making Southeastern Wisconsin a better place to live and do business,” said Michael Pflughoeft, president of the local PRSA chapter.
