Hazard Community and Technical College has brought home gold, silver, and bronze Medallion awards for publications created. The National Council of Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) presented the awards to HCTC’s Wendy Feltner and Evelyn Wood during the district conference in Asheville, NC on Oct. 21.
The gold award was presented for the Impact Report that shows how vital HCTC is to the community’s economic and educational growth as well as vividly demonstrating the financial needs of the College. The silver award was for HCTC’s newsletter “Community Connections,” which is packed with information and photographs about the college’s involvement in the community and student successes; and, the bronze award was for a presentation created for a foundation seeking scholarship funding.
Virginia Moreland, District 2 Director with NCMPR, said this year’s competition was fierce because of the large number of entries, which far exceeded submission numbers from years past.
Also honored by NCMPR this year were three others with KCTCS – the Kentucky Community and Technical College System Office, Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College, and West Kentucky Community and Technical College.
Delcie Combs, Director of Marketing and Communications, praised the two for their awards. “We are fortunate to have Wendy Feltner as a graphic designer and we appreciate Evelyn Wood for her photography and writing. The volume of work by these two is a major contribution to our college and I am thankful for our team approach to projects,” she said.
HCTC President Dr. Jennifer Lindon noted, “We are very proud of the work of Mrs. Feltner and Mrs. Wood, and we appreciate the creativity, writing, and photography that they put into their work. We are especially pleased to see these awards this year after hearing about the especially large number of entries. I congratulate them on their work.”
