October 27--  Southeastern Technical College won two awards for writing and web site design at the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) District 2 Conference at Hilton Head.

The college’s web site, rolled out at the beginning of this year, received a Gold Medallion award from the organization, which commented on the site’s ease-of-use and accessible organization.

I couldn’t be more excited.”

The college also won a Silver Medallion award in the writing category for the profile of Carmela Williams, who found success in business, ministry and gospel music during and after her time at STC.

“Technical education provides the opportunity to hear and see some fantastic stories,” said Clarke Schwabe, PR specialist for STC. “And to a certain extent, our job is to—like our patriot mascot—fight for what we believe in. That becomes very easy with stories like hers.”
