SCC receives national awards for marketing and communications

March 22, 2013

St. Charles Community College received two national-level Paragon awards from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR), an affiliate council of the American Association of Community Colleges.

The SCC Office of Marketing and Communications took home the following awards: a Silver Paragon in the Best Sports Brochure category for the SCC’s 2012 Women’s Soccer Guide and a Silver Paragon in the Best Annual Report category for SCC’s Annual Report 2011-12.

“These are the most prestigious awards for community college marketing and public relations professionals,” said Heather McDorman, vice president for marketing and communications. “We’re fortunate to have such top-level talent here at SCC.”

The awards were announced at the annual NCMPR national conference in Chicago this March. 

More than 165 colleges participated and nearly 1,700 entries were submitted into this national competition.

The National Council for Marketing and Public Relations represents marketing and PR professionals at community and technical colleges. NCMPR’s primary focus is supporting its member’s professional growth. A 15-member board of directors governs the organization. All of them are community college marketing professionals. 

In addition to overseeing the college Welcome Center, SCC’s Office of Marketing and Communications is responsible for advancing the college brand, including publications, graphic design, website, public relations, photography/videography and marketing.  

St. Charles Community College is a public, comprehensive two-year community college with associate degrees and certificate programs in the arts, business, sciences and career-technical fields. SCC provides workforce training and community-based personal and professional development as well as cultural, recreational and entertainment opportunities.
