Clermont College’s newsletter, Connection, has been awarded a gold medal in the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) District 3 Medallion Awards competition. Additionally, a brochure highlighting UC Clermont’s arts program received a silver medal in the same contest. Winners were announced at NCPMR’s District 3 Conference in Indianapolis earlier this month.
“It was a thrill to be recognized by our peers for our marketing and public relations department’s hard work on both publications,” said Mae Hanna, UC Clermont College’s director of marketing and public relations. There were more than 350 entries in the NCMPR Medallions competition.
NCPMR exclusively represents marketing and public relations professionals at two year 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.
Hanna has worked in the communications field for almost 20 years. Her communications career has included stops across the country-as a newspaper reporter and copy editor in Pensacola, Fla., corporate communications director in Santa Ana, Calif., as well as positions on community college campuses in Mississippi, California, Kentucky and finally back in her home state of Ohio.
"Although I've been active in NCMPR for nine years, the regional director position on this national board has given me even more opportunities to share ideas and explore the latest issues faced by my colleagues at similar institutions of higher learning across the nation," said Hanna.
