Introducing our Legends & Leaders


Before attending our Legends & Leaders event on May 17, join us here for a digital introduction to our panelist. These industry legends are an esteemed group of PRSA College Fellow inductees, Silver Anvil Winners and Greater Cleveland PRSA Lighthouse honorees.

Over the past two weeks, members of our News Pros group, interviewed our panelist, learning about their unique career paths, challenges, triumphs as well as their outlook on the evolving PR profession.

On May 5 and 12, we will share our findings – a look into the distinctive experiences that have made them our local legends and leaders.  The panelists include:

  • Chris Lynch, APR, Fellow PRSA, Falls Communications Sr. Vice President
  • Davis Young, APR, Fellow PRSA, former president of Edward Howard & Co.
  • Tracy Oliver, Director, Media & Local Affairs, Ohio at Dominion East Ohio
  • Michele Ewing, APR, Fellow PRSA, Associate Professor at Kent State University

Moving forward, we’ll introduce you to a new set of legends and leaders every quarter. If you know of a legend that you’d like to see featured please email our publicity chair, Brittany Thompson at
