Office of Communication Wins National Awards

Posted by Sean Flynt on 2009-03-30

Samford's Office of Communication has won eight national awards in the prestigious DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Awards competition.

The awards are presented each year by the Religion Communicators Council (RCC,) an interfaith association of more than 600 religion communicators working in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations.

Entries for the 2009 awards (for work completed in 2008) were judged by faculty of Eastern Illinois University. The judges honored Samford projects submitted in several award classes, and chose two as Best of Class.

Philip Poole, Executive Director of University Communication, accepted the awards March 28 at the RCC's annual conference in Boston.
