The Coahoma Community College Office of Communications and Marketing recently attended the College Public Relations Association of Mississippi (CPRAM) 2022 Conference, placing in 8 categories during its award ceremony.
Themed "Back on Track in 2022," the two-day event took place in Gulfport, Mississippi. Attendees were treated to informational sessions and in-depth group discussions.
CPRAM is a consortium of public relations professionals employed at Mississippi's public and private colleges and universities, and affiliated education agencies. The organization provides opportunities for professional development and peer collaborations.
Marriel C. Hardy, chief communications officer, is honored to see OCM be awarded alongside many talented marketing and communication units from across the state.
"It is a wonderful feeling to be recognized for your efforts," said Hardy. "Our communications and marketing team is staffed with top-notch professionals that selflessly give of themselves daily!"
The unit, which is tasked with the management of Coahoma's marketing, public relations, and social media creation and strategy, has grown in recent years. OCM has worked to elevate the CCC brand and create a consistent look and messaging for the over 71-year-old institution.
"The Coahoma brand is rising, and we are deliberate in our planning and the execution of our strategies," added Hardy. "Because of this, we are able to create clear and accurate messaging and visually appealing graphics and multi-media presentations. We are proud of the work we are entrusted to do, and I am proud of the team that we have in place.
