Glynn Young - 2009

Glynn Young's career in St. Louis centered around public relations for Monsanto, Solutia, Shell Oil and, briefly, local education. Over his career he wrote hundreds of speeches for executives and won nine national awards for those efforts. His corporate communications duties also included public relations management, employee and executive communications, for which he won two Silver Anvil Awards from PRSA. Glynn answered the call to help in the reorganization of the St. Louis Public Schools by devoting a year to revamping the internal and external communications programs for the district, and he was given the PRSA College of Fellows Award for his lifetime achievement in the field.
