Congratulations to Lauren Brookey, Tulsa's Newest Member of the College of Fellows

The chapter would like to say, "Congratulations!" to Lauren Brookey, APR, on her recent acceptance into PRSA's College of Fellows.

According to a press release from PRSA, the College of Fellows is a community of fewer than 350 senior PRSA members who have successfully advanced the public relations profession and distinguished themselves through their leadership in the public relations industry. In order to qualify for admittance into the College of Fellows, the public relations practitioner or educator must have at least 20 years of experience, hold the Accredited in Public Relations (APR) credential and have demonstrated exceptional capability and accomplishment in the practice or teaching of public relations. College of Fellows members also must exhibit personal and professional qualities that make them role models for other practitioners or educators. Fewer than two percent of PRSA members are accepted into the College of Fellows.

Brookey joined Tulsa Community College in 2000 as vice president for external affairs with management responsibilities for the departmental functions of advertising, communications, web and graphic design, community relations, and the Tulsa Community College Foundation. Brookey started her career as a journalist for the Tulsa Tribune daily metropolitan newspaper in 1982. She’s since held positions at the Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority; Schnake Turnbo and Associates; Ward Creative Communications in Houston; later rejoined Schnake Turnbo Brookey & Associates as partner and owner in 1995.

She has been active in public service in Tulsa in various nonprofit organizations. She is past president of the Tulsa Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and received the chapter’s Public Relations Professional of the Year in 2000. She has achieved the designation of Accredited Public Relations from the national Public Relations Society of America.
