D’Angelo is one of five PRSA members honored with individual awards for their contributions and service to the communications profession. The Patrick Jackson Award “recognizes a member who has significantly advanced PRSA by working to support Chapters, Districts and the overall organization, inspiring fellow practitioners, both professionally and personally,” a PRSA announcement said.

PRSA highlighted D’Angelo’s distinguished career, which includes public relations leadership roles in the corporate, agency and nonprofit sectors, as well as his achievements at the Newhouse School and writings and commentaries on public relations and strategic communications.

D’Angelo has over 30 years of experience as a PRSA volunteer leader, including serving as chair in 2018. He has also served in key PRSA roles including secretary and treasurer, and has led the advocacy committee for the past several years.

At the Newhouse School, D’Angelo was named interim chair of the public relations department and director of the executive education programs earlier this year. In 2023 he also received the Excellence in Teaching Award, as well as an Excellence in Research, Writing and Creativity Award.

The PRSA awards will be presented later this month at the association’s international conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
