March 26, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The Thoroughbred Chapter of PRSA, the Public Relations Society of America, has named University of Kentucky President Lee T. Todd Jr. its 2002 "Communicator of the Year". Dr. Todd was presented the honor Monday night at PRSAís annual Awards dinner at the Hilton Suites in Lexington.

Adam H. Edelen, vice president of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce, nominated the UK President, citing Toddís "straightforward and honest communications and his soaring vision of a better life for Kentuckians."

In noting that the University presidentís job is second only to the Governorís in importance in the Commonwealth, Edelen praised Toddís communication skills.

"Dr. Todd has articulated a thoughtful approach that has inspired trust in the institution he leads and the vision he proposes," said Edelen.

Toddís outstanding performance in navigating the treacherous waters of both the UK athletic scandals and the state legislature and his cooperative efforts with the city of Lexington to bring the UK campus closer to downtown, were also noted.

Dr. Todd became the 11th president of the University of Kentucky on July 1, 2001,
