Middlesex Community College’s Office of Marketing Communications has been recognized for outstanding work by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) at its recent national conference in San Antonio, Texas. Middlesex received a 2018 Silver Paragon Award for its Social Media Campaign, “MCC Shout-Out Celebration” (#MCCShoutOut).
“Winning a Silver Paragon Award is truly an honor,” said Elizabeth Noel, MCC Interim Director of Marketing Communications. “This recognition, given to us by our peers from across the nation, is an acknowledgement of our marketing team’s commitment to finding creative ways to share the stories of our amazing students, faculty and staff with the communities we serve.”
Affiliated with the American Association of Community Colleges, NCMPR has 1,700 members from nearly 650 colleges across the U.S. and Canada. NCMPR’s prestigious gold, silver and bronze Paragon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in communications at community and technical colleges. This year’s competition drew 1,939 entries from 262 colleges.
The MCC Shout-Out Celebration was designed to increase excitement around graduation 2018, and provide a venue for students to show appreciation to outstanding faculty and staff. Using a variety of social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube – students were asked to give a shout-out to a faculty or staff member who had had an impact on them during their time at the college. More than 90 entries were recorded, then edited into a three-minute video shared during Commencement on all social media platforms.
