The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) has been honored with a Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) for its design of the CSM’s Fall 2016 Credit Course Listing. The work of several people was particularly credited with winning the gold award in the print-class schedule category in the annual competition, including Advancement Division team members Content Developer/Copywriter Amanda Lozano (CSM 2008 graduate), Graphic Designer Katie Reyes (CSM 2011 graduate), Lead Desktop Publisher/Production Specialist Brenda Jones, Director of Creative Services Lisa Jones with images produced by the CSM photography team.
“Kudos to our extremely creative and talented team. They create and produce so many winning pieces that our students and prospects can relate to. Their work is so impressive,” said CSM Vice President of Advancement Michelle Goodwin.
NCMPR’s Paragon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in design and communication at community and technical colleges. It’s the only national competition of its kind that honors excellence exclusively among marketing and PR professionals at two-year colleges.
This year’s competition drew nearly 1,800 entries from 247 colleges across North America. Nearly 90 marketing and PR professionals from around the country served as judges, selected by NCMPR members who volunteered as judging coordinators. Winners were announced earlier this year at NCMPR’s national conference in Charleston, South Carolina.
NCMPR is the only organization of its kind that exclusively represents marketing and public relations professionals at community and technical colleges. As one of the fastest-growing affiliates of the American Association of Community Colleges, NCMPR has more than 1,550 members from more than 650 colleges across the United States, Canada and other countries.
