Rick Smith

VP of Internships, VP of Advocacy

Rick grew up in Orem, Utah just a stone's throw away from Utah Valley University campus. He learned about Public Relations from a friend and fellow UVU PRSSA member. Since switching his major to PR, he has developed a passion for it.

Rick has been involved in many ways with the UVU PRSSA chapter since joining. He has served on the Regional Conference board of directors, as assistant director of Advocacy, has volunteered at several PRSSA events, and has traveled with the chapter on several trips.

He hopes to be able to advocate the UVU PRSSA and spread the message of its achievements. By assisting his fellow peers to utilize the resources of the PRSSA, helping to find internships, and to further strengthen the chapter, he will help UVU PRSSA achieve even higher levels of excellence.
