Southeastern Tech Receives Awards for Website Design, Writing
October 22, 2013 - Southeastern Technical College won two awards for writing and web site design at the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) District 2 Conference in Hilton Head on Oct. 15.
The college’s web site, rolled out at the beginning of this year, received a Gold Medallion award from the organization, which commented on the site’s ease-of-use and accessible organization.
“It feels like all the hard work has paid off,” said Krysta Rushing, director of marketing and public relations at STC. “Out of the hundreds of entries submitted, we brought home not one, but two awards. I couldn’t be more excited.”
The college also won a Silver Medallion award in the writing category for the profile of Carmela Williams, who found success in business, ministry and gospel music during and after her time at STC.
“Technical education provides the opportunity to hear and see some fantastic stories,” said Clarke Schwabe, PR specialist for STC. “And to a certain extent, our job is to—like our patriot mascot—fight for what we believe in. That becomes very easy with stories like hers.”
The NCMPR holds conferences across the country and fosters, promotes and recognizes high-level marketing and public relations work done in the service of community and technical colleges. District 2 includes colleges in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and The Bahamas.
