Kathryn (Katy) Belanger, 2020–2021 vice president of digital communications, is a senior at Sam
Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. She is majoring in mass communications with an
emphasis in public relations and advertising and a minor in graphic design.

Belanger joined PRSSA her freshman year after she switched her emphasis to public relations
and with the guidance of her adviser. Since then, she has served as SHSU PRSSA’s vice
president of public relations for three semesters. She served as the program director for the
2020 Southwest District Conference “PR Incorporated.” She also was the 2019–2020 Southwest
District Ambassador and a member of the national social media subcommittee.

Belanger has held many internship positions, with the most recent, working at the State Fair of

creation, and internal and external communications experience.

Her passion for social media flourished as the vice president of public relations at the SHSU Chapter of
PRSSA. Through the growth and creative freedom of that position, Belanger is excited to use
this position to highlight more students and the amazing work they are creating on campus.

In her spare time, Belanger loves finding the perfect glass of iced coffee and vintage thrift
treasures. She enjoys binge watching tv shows and podcasts. She also stays busy running her
own graphic design platform, @katyb_designs, where she creates custom illustrations and
