Magazine story and image of brochure

Catholic University’s Office of Marketing and Communications has been honored with two Accolades awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

The cover story in the winter 2018 issue of CatholicU Magazine received a gold award in the category “Best Articles of the Year.” The article, titled “Recovery: I Found I Had a Purpose”, was written by Ellen N. Woods, the magazine’s managing editor and director of creative services. The feature story details the life journey of Kenny Baldwin, a 2018 graduate of the Metropolitan School of Professional Studies, from addiction to recovery to using continuing education as a path to help others. The gold award for best article comes in a platinum category of the awards program, which means it will automatically compete in CASE’s Circle of Excellence international awards program this spring.  

In addition, the University received a bronze award in the category “Publications Design” for the 2017-2018 music season brochure. The brochure was designed by Kristin Reavey, senior graphic designer and assistant director of creative services.

CASE facilitates the work of higher education professionals in the areas of philanthropy, alumni relations, and marketing and communications. Accolades is the awards program of District II, the largest of CASE’s eight districts, which includes 700 higher education institutions from Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ontario, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and West Virginia.

The awards were announced in January. The awards ceremony will be held in March at the CASE District II annual conference in Philadelphia.
