The MN PRSA Classics Awards are one of my favorite events of the year. Sadly, this year, I could not attend. But, it sounds like it was yet another fantastic event last week. You can see the full list of winners here on the MN PRSA site. In particular, I want to call out Maggie LaMaack who won the Young Professional of the Year Award. Happy to see deserving people get the spotlight!
