Samford University's office of communications won several honors in the recent DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Awards sponsored by the Religion Communications Council (RCC).

Scott Camp, senior graphics designer, won two awards of excellence for the spring 2005 Ministry Enrichment Workshops brochure produced for Samford's Beeson Divinity School. The brochure won in both publications and design categories.

Also recognized by the awards committee were Seasons magazine in the local/regional magazine category; the 2005 President's Report in the annual report category; and the Samford traditions poster, which was produced for new students, in the posters category. All three projects involved multiple communications staff members.

RCC, founded in 1929, is an international multifaith professional organization of more than 600 members. The DeRose-Hinkhouse Awards have been presented annually since 1955. More than 330 entries were received this year.

"These awards are just further recognition of the outstanding work produced on a daily basis by Samford's communications professionals," said Michael D. Morgan, vice president for university relations. "To be recognized by your peers is the highest professional honor."
