WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College marketing and media relations departments were recognized with prestigious Medallion Awards last month during a National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) district conference.

According to PCC Media Relations Director Rob Goldberg, members of the college’s marketing department received a Gold Medallion Award for their work on the 2013 PCC Annual Report to the Community.

Goldberg said media relations staff received a Silver Medallion Award for the college’s monthly “PCC InSight” video series, and both departments shared a Bronze Medallion Award for a successful 2013 community relations information campaign regarding PCC’s pursuit of a $19.9 million bond referendum for campus expansion.

"We are very proud of the professionalism of our media relations and marketing staff, and we are delighted about the outstanding recognition and awards they received from NCMPR,” said PCC Vice President of Institutional Advancement Susan Nobles.

Held annually, the NCMPR Medallion Awards are given in recognition of outstanding achievement in communications at community and technical colleges. This year’s ceremony took place Oct. 28 at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn., which hosted the 2014 NCMPR District 2 Conference. Goldberg and Media Relations Specialist Alex Freedman attended the conference and accepted the awards on PCC’s behalf.

NCMPR is the only organization of its kind to exclusively represent marketing and public relations professionals at community and technical colleges. The organization, which boasts more than 1,550 members, is affiliated with the American Association of Community Colleges.
