Coon Rapids & Cambridge, Minn. The National Council for Marketing and Public Relations awarded Anoka-Ramsey Community College (ARCC) a silver Paragon for its work on a folder cover designed to attract the attention of high school students considering college. Paragon awards recognize outstanding achievement in communications at community, junior 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. The 2004 winners were announced on March 15, 2005, at NCMPR’s annual national conference in Minneapolis.
“We are working diligently to make people aware of the excellent educational opportunities available at our campuses in Cambridge and Coon Rapids,” says Mary Jacobson, ARCC Director of Marketing and Public Relations. “This award has validated our efforts so far, but there is still more to do. We want people to know that coming to Anoka-Ramsey is a very smart choice!”
This year’s Paragon Awards contained 1,750 entries - greatest number of entries in the organization’s history. This is the first Paragon awarded to the college.
