College Relations Staff Wins Pepperpot PR Award

December 20, 2005

MAYS LANDING-Atlantic Cape Community College's College Relations office captured a first place Pepperpot Award from the Philadelphia chapter of the Public Relations Society of America for activities associated with the opening of ACCC's Cape May County Campus.

The award was in the Special Events and Observances (7 days or fewer) category for the grand opening of the Cape May Court House campus. It recognized public relations and special event planning work done for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and the ACCC Community Day. The award was presented at a dinner at the Union League in Philadelphia.

It was ACCC’s first Pepperpot award from the 500-member Philadelphia PRSA chapter of professional public relations practitioners. It was the second major award for the grand opening, which also garnered a gold Medallion from the National Council of Marketing and Public Relations, District 1, in October.

Staffers who participated in the project were Kathy Corbalis, executive director, Stacey Clapp, Geoff Pettifer, Donna Leeds, Kathy McGowan, Anna Simmons and Sherwood Taylor.
