TCC Communications, PR & Marketing Team Wins Worthy Awards

FORT WORTH, Texas (Nov. 25, 2015) – Tarrant County College’s District Communications, Public Relations & Marketing team won four honors in the recent 4th Annual Worthy Awards. The Worthy Awards, hosted by the Greater Fort Worth Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), recognizes the region’s best in public relations and communications.
Under the direction of Executive Director Suzanne Cottraux, the TCC’s District CPRM team’s four wins included an Award of Achievement for TCC’s magazine, REACH. CPRM staff involved in these efforts include DeeDra Parrish, Rita L.B. Parson, Kendra Prince, Sara Rogers, Brandon Tucker, Connie Wiebe and Cottraux. An Award of Excellence went to Parson for her REACH article, “TCC’s 50th Anniversary: Time for Reflection and Celebration.”
Rogers and Tucker, along with Web Communications colleague Barbara Prellwitz, received an Award of Excellence for the #TCCGrads Campaign, which featured creative graduation cap designs by students on TCC’s social media outlets.
In addition, Tucker and Web Development Manager Stephen Fornal created the TCC 50th Anniversary website, which also earned an Award of Excellence.
“I always tell my team that we enjoy the best jobs at Tarrant County College, because we get to craft and convey stories about how the College continually drives student retention and student success,” Cottraux said. “Our foremost priority is to produce consistently excellent work that illuminates TCC’s strengths as the third-largest higher-education institution in Texas, and awards like these underscore just how excellent the final products really are.”
Members of PRSA chapters outside of the region serve as judges for the competition. Entries are judged based on rationale, objective/purpose, execution and results.
Additional competitions in which TCC’s CPRM team placed this year include the CASE District IV Accolades, Educational Advertising Awards, Graphic Design USA’s American Inhouse Awards and the PR Daily Nonprofit PR Awards.
