Campbell Magazine feature earns CASE Circle of Excellence award


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Campbell University’s advancement team earned  a school-record 12 awards at the annual Council for Advancement and Support of Education District III Conference in Nashville Tuesday night. Of the 12 wins, Campbell took home three Grand Awards – the top distinction in each category – competing against higher education institutions in the nine-state Southeast region.

Campbell won grand in the Best Practices in Alumni Relations Platinum category for its work in planning, promoting, executing and covering last year’s “An Evening with J. Bradley Creed” presidential speaking tour that introduced the University’s fifth president to alumni in more than a dozen cities. The award fell under one of CASE III’s seven Platinum categories, meaning the entry is automatically entered into the international CASE Circle of Excellence award contest to be announced this summer.

The University’s flagship publication, Campbell Magazine, was responsible for the other two Grand awards Tuesday. Director of Publications and magazine editor Billy Liggett won for best feature writing for his story in the fall 2015 edition, “In the Field: A Day in the Life of a Third-Year Medical Student.” Liggett and Director of Visual Identity Jonathan Bronsink also won Grand for best photography series for the photos and layout associated with the same “In the Field” story that followed Campbell Medical students on their rotations at Southeast Regional Health Center in Lumberton.
