The Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District and Grossmont College were honored Thursday with five PRO Awards from the Community College Public Relations Organization in recognition of exemplary marketing, communications, design and public relations efforts. CCPRO is a statewide professional development and service organization that seeks to promote excellence in California's community college public relations and related professions.
The college district’s awards included those recognizing its efforts to inform the public about Proposition V, Grossmont-Cuyamaca’s $398 million construction bond measure approved by East County voters in November, and Proposition 30, the statewide tax measure for education funding, which also won in the fall election.
The awards presented at CCPRO’s annual conference in Santa Ana:
In March, Grossmont College received a national first-place Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations for its radio ad promoting the college’s 50th anniversary celebration.
