That’s the group that, during an e-mail appeal for more subscribers, told PR executives nationally that they can “score big” in the industry if they “Don’t be like Wichita State.” The e-mail came shortly after the Shockers’ NCAA tournament loss.
PRSA president-elect Mary Beth Chambers says she invited Schwartz to “talk about lessons learned and best practices.”
On or about April 8, Chambers says she extended an invitation via e-mail.
“I think I gave it about a week or so before I followed up with a phone call and left a message.”
She says Schwartz didn’t return the call or e-mail.
“I said we weren’t going to tar and feather her,” Chambers says. “Maybe she didn’t believe me.”
Schwartz did return a call from The Eagle.
