Sherry Kast, an Accredited Public Relations practitioner and Fellow PRSA, will share how “Landing on Your Feet: How to Succeed Amid Challenge and Change” has been essential during her nearly 30-year journey as one of Oklahoma’s top PR superstars during a meeting of the Association of Women in Communications from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 6 at Dunlap Codding, 609 W. Sheridan Ave. in Oklahoma City.
Formerly a vice president with True Sky Credit Union, Kast has navigated a constantly changing communications industry – learning invaluable insights along the way. As a female entrepreneur with Cherokee heritage, she understands the struggles faced by women and minorities trying to make a difference in today’s world. Although her journey hasn’t been without obstacles, Kast is known for her ability to land on her feet, no matter how high the hurdle.
Recognized for her collaborative leadership style and dedication to her craft, Kast has earned her more than 75 awards for her work in writing, marketing, communications and PR – making her a walking trophy case of success. She was also inducted into the PRSA College of Fellows in 2016.
Kast is also the president of Kast Publishing, LLC, which she established in September 2009. Dedicated to supporting her community and honoring her Native American heritage, the publishing company also raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, among other charities.
Today, Kast is the author of “A Soldier’s Silent Prayer,” the survival story of World War II Veteran Philip Coon and has published “Warrior Forgotten,” “Incredible Images,” “Hope Survives” and will release “Scenes from Cherokee Country” next month.
The event is free for AWC members and $10 for nonmembers. Sponsored by Moore Laundry, a baked potato bar will be offered along with drinks and desserts. To register: https://bit.ly/35CS5Qc.
