PBSC wins national award for ‘one college’ video
Palm Beach State College has won a Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations for a promotional video highlighting the College’s “Five Campuses, One College” concept.
The 1 ½-minute video won a third-place bronze award in the video shorts-single category. Produced in-house by Idalia Centeno, multimedia specialist in the College Relations and Marketing office, the video featured PBSC students, faculty and staff.
NCMPR, which has a membership of about 1,600 PR and marketing professionals from more than 650 colleges, presented gold, silver and bronze awards in 53 categories at an awards banquet held March 20 in Las Vegas. NCMPR received 1,943 entries from 243 colleges around the nation. The competition is the only one of its kind that honors excellence among marketing and PR professionals at two-year colleges.
The award is among the most recent recognition the College has earned for work produced by College Relations and Marketing staff. In October, the College also won bronze Medallion Awards from NCMPR District II in the Excellence in Writing and College Promotional Brand video categories. Kristi Sorrow, college relations and marketing specialist, and Centeno profiled the story of Daniel O’Neal, a PBSC graduate who struggled with PTSD. He received his Associate in Science degree in Paralegal last May with the support of many, including his service dog, a 6-year-old male Siberian Husky named Ghost.
