Photos and Story by

College Advancement has won six awards from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations. There were more than 1,700 entries from two-year colleges across the nation. PCC won first place for comprehensive campaigns in two consecutive years in two different categories. Last year it was the Possibilities Playbook recruiting campaign, and this year it was the bond information campaign. PCC also received a bronze award this year in fund raising campaigns.
