In November 2023, Wilson Public Relations Founder + President Beth Wilson was honored at the 2023 Outstanding Alumni Awards for Journalism & Strategic Media by the University of Memphis.

Beth earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the university of 2004, followed by an Executive MBA in 2014. She has also received her Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) from the Universal Accreditation Board. In her acceptance speech, Beth shared some insight into those who paved the way for this incredible honor.

Let me start by saying thank you.

Thank you to the University of Memphis.

To this department. It truly set the foundation and led me to this point in my career.

To my professors, fellow students, advisors (who advised me from news-ed to broadcast, and eventually, to PR).

For my time as an adjunct, and to today.

All that experience and all these folks taught me valuable lessons, helped to set me up for success, and they were/have been some of the most rewarding aspects of my life.

Beth went on to thank her family, friends, extended family, and colleagues who have played a role in her journey so far. A special credit goes to her late husband, Brent, who played a key role in setting the foundation for Wilson PR many years ago.
