The Port Huron Schools Community Relations/Marketing Director, Keely Baribeau, has been named the 2019 recipient of the Gerri Allen Outstanding School Communicator Award by the Michigan School Public Relations Association (MSPRA). Ms. Baribeau has served on the MSPRA Board of Directors since 2015. 

The statewide award annually recognizes a “practicing Public Relations professional in a public school, district, educational agency, service center or intermediate unit.” Baribeau said, “It is a true honor to be nominated by Superintendent Cain and to have the support and endorsement of a group of professional communicators of the caliber of the MSPRA membership.” Baribeau has been a communication professional for more than 20 years, starting her career as a television producer/writer in Los Angeles. Her communications colleague and fellow MSPRA Board member, Garth Kriewall, who is also a local resident, presented her with the award.
