Middlesex Community College’s Office of Marketing Communications has been recognized for outstanding work by regional members of the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR), the premiere organization for two-year college communications professionals.

MCC was awarded six Medallion Awards – four silver and two bronze – during NCMPR’s recent District 1 Conference, held in Newport, R.I. The annual Medallion Awards competition spotlights the best work among District 1 member colleges. More than 250 entries were submitted in 46 categories.

“To receive awards from our regional college-marketing peers is a wonderful recognition of the MCC communications team,” said Jennifer Aradhya, Director of Marketing Communications. “We are proud to promote student success at Middlesex through our innovative work in broad marketing channels, including social media, video and public relations.”

The Office of Marketing Communications earned Silver Medallion Awards in the categories of Logo Design (Commonwealth Honors Program logo); Social Media Campaign (#MCCgrad Commencement campaign); Social Media Contest (UR 1st 30 Days Instagram Challenge); and Communications Success Story (Alicia Gentile: Dual Enrollment student who graduated from MCC and Nashoba Tech).

The college won Bronze Medallion Awards in the categories of Video Shorts (Commonwealth Honors Program video) and One-Time Special Event (inauguration of President James C. Mabry).

Affiliated with the American Association of Community Colleges, NCMPR has 1,550 members from more than 650 colleges across the United States, Canada and other countries. NCMPR’s District 1 includes colleges from the northeastern U.S., eastern Canada and the United Kingdom.
