The Galveston College Public Affairs team recently won two Medallion Awards from District IV of the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations for work to promote the college’s Continuing Education programs.

The college received the gold Medallion Award for best academic catalog/class schedule for the summer 2018 continuing education schedule and the bronze award for digital advertising for continuing education social media ads.

Sandi Smith, graphics specialist, and Trish Szymanski, digital communications and web services manager, accepted the awards at the 2018 Medallion Awards ceremony at the NCMPR District IV conference in Denver, Colorado.

“This recognition comes at a time when amazing things are happening at Galveston College,” said Carol Langston, director of public affairs. “These awards are special acknowledgement of our efforts to promote the life-changing opportunities Galveston College offers to students and the community. I am so proud of our talented Public Affairs team members who work with our partners in the Continuing Education department to develop such creative schedules and advertising. It’s a great day to be a Whitecap.”
