Georgia College hopes to ‘Put Some South In Your Mouth’



The five-member group will also create an in-depth campaign book for submission to PRSSA National for it to be judged and hopefully selected as one of the top three. If chosen, the members will travel to New York City and present their anti-bullying campaign initiative for a chance to win a monetary award.

“[The campaign] is a reference to southern values and hospitality. The vast majority of our community was raised in the south, but has let their southern manners fall to the wayside when it comes to bullying. After someone attends one of our events, we want them to remember to put some south in their mouth the next time they feel the urge to bully another person,” McGuire said. “We have received some great feedback. [The campaign] is really cutting through the anti-bullying clutter. At the end of the day, if we are able to end the onslaught of bullying for one student in Baldwin County, we feel that we have done our job.”

Bobcat PRSSA was founded in 2008 and is now a nationally recognized and awarded chapter, and holds the esteem of being distinguished as a Star Chapter. With more than 110 members, the school organization offers professional development, networking and leadership opportunities to students.
