Scooter Media founder and president Shannan Boyer will be recognized later this month as the 2021 Northern Kentucky Young Professionals (NKYP) Legend Award recipient at the Next Generation Leader Awards (NGLAs) celebration.
The NKYP Legend Award is presented to an individual who excelled as a young professional leader in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati region and has continued to inspire leadership and career success among young professionals throughout their career.
Boyer is receiving the award in recognition of her impressive 20-plus years working in communications on a local, regional, and national level.
She is best known for founding her PR agency, Scooter Media, in 2012. Scooter Media has been named Small/Mid-Sized PR Agency of the Year by the Cincinnati Chapter of PRSA for four consecutive years, while Boyer collected the chapter’s PR Professional of the Year honor in 2015.
She has also been named to the Cincinnati Business Courier’s “Forty Under 40” list and Cincy Chic’s “Woman of the Year.”
An active member of the community, Boyer is a board member for Aviatra Accelerators and is on the Northern Kentucky University Alumni Board of Directors. She is also involved with Xavier University’s Mentor Program.
“It’s humbling to receive this award, especially when I think about how far I’ve come since being involved in NKYP during the early years. This impactful program provides our region’s young professionals with opportunities to engage, connect and grow early in their careers,” Boyer said. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support and guidance I’ve received from countless mentors and business leaders in our community over the years. I’m lucky to be surrounded by incredible people who have played a major role in the trajectory of my career – from family and friends to my mentors, as well as my team at Scooter Media.”
Additionally, Scooter Media Account Supervisor Lauren Vogel, APR, has been selected as a finalist for the NGLAs in the “Public Relations, Media and Marketing” category.
The Next Generation Leader Awards will be presented on July 27 at Hotel Covington.
