Angela Bradbery, University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications (UFCJC) Frank Karel Chair in Public Interest Communications, was honored as Mentor of the Year in the 2024 PRNEWS Impact Communications Awards.

Formerly known as the PRNEWS Social Impact Awards, the awards honor outstanding corporate social responsibility, environmental and social governance, and diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives in the communications industry.
