Former Pine Needle Editor-in-Chief Jessica Horne received Blue Ribbon Awards from the North Carolina School Public Relations Association  for outstanding communication. Horne is the Chief Communication Officer for Public Schools of Robeson County.  

During the ceremony on Friday in High Point, NCSPRA presented three awards to Horne. It is the second year in a row that she received the excellence in communication citation. 

The district received a Bronze Award for Excellence in Writing, a Bronze Award for Photography and Silver Award for Publication.  

“It is an honor for the district to receive Blue Ribbon Awards for the second year in a row from NCSPRA,” Horne said. “I am thankful for the opportunity to serve this district, its students and our stakeholders across Robeson County who make up our PSRC family. I am committed to continuing the improvement of our communication both internally and externally. I am also grateful to work with people across departments who are just as passionate and committed to the work as I am. This is one testament of the many great things happening in PSRC. Stay tuned for many, many more!”  

PSRC received a Blue Ribbon Award in 2021 for Electronic Media.
