Midge Vreeland Public Service Award

Named in honor of the late Midge Vreeland, the Maine Public Relations Council (MPRC) Midge Vreeland Public Service Award recognizes a public relations professional or organization whose efforts help the greater good and embodies the core principles held by Midge Vreeland—integrity, commitment to community service and a willingness to advance organizations and their causes.

Midge Vreeland embraced and supported MPRC both professionally and personally. Recognizing the APR accreditation as a tool to advance our profession, Midge was one of the first PR Professionals in the state, and the first agency owner, to study for and pass the APR examination. She supported MPRC by encouraging staff members to participate on various MRPC committees. Under her guidance, Vreeland Marketing & Design entered agency work in the Golden Arrows annual competition.
