Five public relations professionals are the newest inductees into the Southern Public Relations Hall of Fame. The 2013 honorees include Neal W. Cirlot (posthumously), of Diamondhead. Cirlot retired from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi where he worked as the public relations director for 27 years. In his early career, he served in the Coast Guard and U.S. Navy. Cirlot was an active volunteer and member of numerous civic and public relations organizations, including PRAM and SPRF. Most notably, he pioneered both SPRF and the PRAM Central Chapter, where he was the inaugural Chairman for both. He received numerous awards for his work through professional recognition programs. Following retirement, he served as chair of the Moss Point Historical Committee and managed Griffin Cemetery.

Cirlot received a bachelor’s degree from Millsaps College. He passed away in 2002, but his ties to Mississippi’s public relations field left a lasting imprint on the profession.

The other 2013 inductees are: Betsie Gambel, New Orleans, La.; Carol A. Mann, APR, Mobile, Ala.; Charles “Chuck” Saucier (posthumously), Alexandria, La.; and, John Wittig, Ph.D, APR, Hoover, Ala.
