BALTIMORE - Sept. 30, 2019 - PRLog -- The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) awarded Attiyya Atkins with one of its two 2019 Diversity Fellowships at its "Best of the Best" Ceremony on Wednesday, September 25 held at the Hilton Hotel in Batlimore. Atkins was chosen for this honor due to her dedication to environmental education in parks. As a Public Communications Specialist, she has fostered several initiatives within Broward County Parks and Recreation that encourage diverse communities to appreciate their environment and their communities.

The NRPA Diversity Scholarship was awarded to two individuals from underrepresented groups in the parks and recreation community who have demonstrated outstanding contributions serving diverse communities.

"The NRPA National Awards and Scholarship Committee is pleased to honor the 2019 NRPA Awards, Scholarships and Fellowships recipients," says Dan Olson, chair of NRPA's national awards and scholarship committee and director of operations for Champaign Park District in Champaign, Illinois. "The committee was honored to review all the applications of qualified individuals and agencies that have made significant contributions to their communities through the field of parks and recreation."


The NRPA (National Recreation and Park Association) was formed in 1965 by the five agencies in the public sector involved in the support of park and recreation services. NRPA is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of public parks, recreation, and conservation. Their mission is for everyone to have easy access to park and recreation opportunities in sustainable communities.


Atkins is a veteran communicator and founder of A+ Editing & Content Creation, an on-demand, full-service ghostwriting agency. Atkins also co-presented at the annual conference in Baltimore, Maryland, September 24-26, 2019 on environmental education and how the public can adapt to climate change. Atkins hopes to demonstrate the ways parks and their partners can adapt to environmental issues and raise conservation awareness by engaging students with hands-on, experiential, research-based STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) curricula.

Through her people-first method, Atkins has been able to marketing campaigns that engage the community in socially responsible causes, increase social media followings, and produce videos that encourage people to connect with nature. For more information, Follow her on Twitter: @Attiyya_sun
