Green, the Director of Communications and Development for Oldham County Schools, received an award as one of three 2015 Communication Rising Stars at the Landmarks of Excellence Awards, presented by the Public Relations Society of America’s Bluegrass Chapter and the International Association of Business Communicators/Louisville.

This is the first year for the Rising Star award, which recognizes emerging leaders — age 32 or younger — whose work reflects ongoing and exceptional growth in contributing to the fields of public relations or communications. The other Rising Star recipients are Charissa Acree, public relations manager for Price Weber, and Gary Stinson, digital media manager for the Kentucky Derby Festival.

In addition, Kentucky Commission on Women Executive Director Eleanor Jordan and Louisville Orchestra Music Director Teddy Abrams will be honored as 2015 Communicators of the Year. “Both Eleanor Jordan and Teddy Abrams succeeded where others have failed through building relationships, creating consensus and initiating new conversations with the community,” said CJ Parrish, IABC LOU president.

Matt Kamer, partner and director of public relations for Bandy Carroll Hellige, will be inducted into Landmarks’ Communicators Hall of Fame. Kamer, partner and director of public relations of Bandy Carroll Hellige, has demonstrated the highest levels of professional ethics, leadership and service to the profession as well as the community.

Since 1982, PRSA and IABC have partnered to recognize outstanding communications achievement in Louisville.
