News: PCC Wins Again at Public Relations State Conference
The Pasadena City College Public Relations Office continued its long-standing winning streak at the 2013 Community College Public Relations Organization (CCPRO) Conference with a first and second place PRO Award in the category of Sports Media Guide and a third place win in the category of Banner/Outdoor Media.
The annual conference, which was held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Santa Ana, Calif. on April 18-19, recognizes excellence in California's community college public relations and related professions.
"We pour many hours of work and energy toward producing a quality printed sports media guide,” said Robert Lewis, PCC sports information specialist. “To be honored once again by our peers in the public relations field is special, and we take pride that PCC is a perennial winner in the sports media category. It's an affirmation that we do our job well of promoting student and team success."
PCC’s first place win came from the 2013 Lancers football media guide, and the college’s second place award was for the 2013 Lancers women’s basketball media guide.
The PCC sports media guides are a collaborative effort, written and edited by Lewis, with graphics produced by Jesus Ruiz, typesetter/production artist for the PCC Publications Office. Photos are provided by Richard Quinton, PCC sports information photographer, and Richshell Allen, PCC digital media technician.
“I’m inspired to be part of a team that puts out such consistent, quality work,” Ruiz said. “It’s an added bonus that our work is recognized by the industry and our peers.”
PCC received third place for its Distinguished Alumni banners, which can be seen at the turnaround in front of the Industrial Technologies Building on Hill Ave.
