By Marisa Gilbert

Lee University’s Office of Publications recently received three silver and two bronze awards in the 32nd Annual Educational Advertising Awards, sponsored by Higher Education Marketing Report.

Silver awards were given for the 2016 Insider Magazine, the 2016 Alumni Calendar, and a CityScope Magazine advertisement. Bronze awards were given for the 2016 New Student Orientation Program Book and a Global Perspectives mailer. All five publications were created by the Publications Office student staff which includes Kaylee Callahan, Zach Camp, Kayla Hughett, Patrick MacGowen, Riley Mattila, James Mears, Ashley Resto, and Josh Roden, along with Randi Vasquez, Lee’s coordinator of photography, and Regenia Collier, director of publications at Lee.

“The magic in our office is teamwork,” said Collier. “These are Lee students producing professional-level projects. I am energized daily by their skill and passion as they develop their careers.”

Judges for the Educational Advertising Awards consisted of a national panel of higher education marketers, advertising creative directors, marketing and advertising professionals, and the editorial board of Higher Education Marketing Report.

“It is rewarding to work in an office where we can gain valuable experience creating a variety of pieces,” said Roden, lead student designer. “We are proud of the work we do and honored to be acknowledged for our efforts in this way.”

The Educational Advertising Awards is the largest, oldest, and most respected educational advertising awards competition in the country. This year, over 2,250 entries were received from over 1,000 colleges, universities, and secondary schools from all 50 states and several foreign countries.
