Cindy Kane, corporate relations director at Harris Corp., has been selected the alumna of distinction for 2013 by the University of Florida’s college of journalism and communications.
Kane joined five other awardees during a banquet in April at the university, Harris said Thursday.
The company said Kane received the recognition due to her accomplishments and work in the public, private, and non-profit sector.
As corporate relations director, Kane is in charge of university and community relations, K-12 programs, the company’s customer briefing center and the Harris Foundation.
Harris said that since its inception in 1970, only 131 of 30,000 University of Florida advertising, public relations and telecommunications graduates received this distinction.
