The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana College Relations Department was selected as a winner of two awards at the 36thAnnual Educational Advertising Awards competition in Atlanta, Georgia. The Educational Advertising Awards is the largest educational advertising competition in the country. This year, over 2,000 entries were received from over one thousand colleges and universities from all fifty states and several foreign countries. The College Relations team consisting of Casey Curtis, Communications Coordinator, and Caley Pennington, Graphic and Web Design Coordinator, won the Gold Award for the “Program Spotlight Magazine” and the Merit Award for the “UAHT Chancellor Search Website.”
“Connecting current and future students with potential jobs, job responsibilities, and salaries of the programs we offer was the goal of creating the Program Spotlight Magazine,” said Curtis. “The magazine has turned out to be a favorite piece for our recruiters. It helps them connect the dots between our programs of study and how they connect to the real world.”
As a part of UAHT’s year long chancellor search, the College Relations Department built a dedicated website. “We built the chancellor search website as a part of the plan to attract quality candidates to apply and to help them have a one-stop-shop to learn about the College and the southwest, AR area,” said Curtis. “… it generated traffic from eight countries, one U.S. Territory, and three-hundred-seven cities. More importantly, it helped the college in acquiring a world-class applicant pool for the position.”
