Vice President of Digital Communications
Briana Spears, 2018–2019 vice president of digital communications, is a senior at Millersville University of Pennsylvania majoring in speech communications with a concentration in public relations.
Growing up in a Christian household has allowed her not only to grow spiritually but to evolve into the woman she is today.
After transferring from a local community college, Spears discovered PRSSA during her sophomore year of college. It was at that time that Spears grew a passion, dedication, and undying love for PRSSA. After attending the PRSSA 2016 National Conference in Indianapolis and serving as a delegate for her Chapter at PRSSA 2017 National Assembly in Seattle, Spears realized she wanted to be involved in a greater way. She went on to become the 2017–2018 Chapter president for Millersville University. She has reaped the benefits of her membership in many ways, including being awarded the National Assembly travel grant which allowed her to run for her current position on the National Committee.
Spears has been heavily involved on her campus and in her community through internships and extracurricular activities. She is the vice president of the Millersville University Gospel Choir, a member of the Frederick Douglass Debate Team, an Orientation Leader at Millersville University, the social media manager of the Tri City Youth Choir, and a former member of her school’s Student Government Association.
Overall, Spears has held six internships, including her most recent internship in the Office of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and her current internship with the Turkey Hill Dairy.
Outside of school Spears enjoys spending time with friends, writing poetry and listening to music. She particularly enjoys binge watching the Hallmark channel while eating her favorite ice cream.
Spears is passionate about living life to the fullest. As someone whose endured many struggles, she understands the importance of giving her best and ultimately, giving it to God. She credits her faith and strong religious beliefs for her success.
