Marketing Council Honors Baltimore City Community College with National Award

Baltimore City Community College has received a 2022 Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) at the council’s national conference, which ran March 30 to April 1 in Orlando, Florida.

The award, for best Brochure Single or Series, celebrates the college’s marketing team for its work on their “Career Pathways,” a brochure which featured eye catching graphic designs by BCCC’s senior graphic designer, Jason Quick.

“It is an honor to be a recipient of this prestigious award that recognizes community and technical colleges in the US and Canada. With more than 1,700 entries, I am proud to know BCCC ranked among the top winners,” said Dr. Debra L. McCurdy, president of Baltimore City Community College.

“I love to celebrate the outstanding work of our community college marketers,” says Jeff Ebbing, NCMPR’s 2022-23 president. “The creativity and hard work that went into the winning entries is on par with some of the best agencies in the country and is a testament to the talent and dedication of our members. These people are pros in every sense of the word.”

The 2022 Paragon Awards drew 1,726 entries from 323 colleges across the country and was judged by more than 40 professionals from the marketing and public relations industry.

NCMPR’s Paragon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in design and communication at community and technical colleges. It's the only national competition of its kind that honors excellence exclusively among marketing and public relations professionals at two-year colleges.
