Randolph wins awards for publications and special events

Randolph College earned three awards from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) last week, recognizing the quality of the College’s publications and events.

Randolph magazine and the Bulletin, the College’s alumnae and alumni magazine, each won an Award for Excellence in the category of Magazine/Tabloid Improvement I. This category, which includes all schools with enrollment under 5,000 students, recognizes improvement in the overall publication over a period of two years, and only gives two Awards of Excellence.

Randolph magazine is produced by the Office of College Relations, and the Bulletin is produced by the Office of College Relations and the Alumnae and Alumni Office.

Randolph College also received a Special Merit Award in the Special Event category for its entry, “Celebrating the Ninth President of Randolph College.” Randolph competed against schools of all sizes in this category, which was designed to recognize university or college events organized by the institution’s communications and marketing team. Randolph’s entry included announcements, publications, and an event surrounding the 2013 retirement of John E. Klein.

The awards were presented at a banquet Tuesday, February 18, during the CASE District III annual conference in Orlando, Florida.

“These awards recognize the important work that the women and men who work in College Relations and the Alumnae and Alumni Office do day in and day out to share the good news of Randolph College,” said Wesley Fugate, vice president and chief of staff, who oversees College Relations. “This team works diligently to not only produce outstanding publications and events but also produce a product better than the last. I am so pleased that their hard work and talent has been recognized by their peers.”
