The Cherokee County School District has earned seven national awards for excellence in communications and public relations!
The National School Public Relations Association annually honors the best publications and electronic media produced by school districts nationwide as part of their communications efforts.
“Community engagement and support is critical to our school district’s success, and these awards recognize our Office of Communications’ success in providing high quality communications,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “We’re dedicated to providing timely and relevant information to our community, and we’re committed to further improvements every day.”
The school district earned Merit Awards for: Class Act, the annual magazine published at the start of the school year; the annual report, “CCSD Evidence of Success - 10 Amazing Things We've Done in 2021”; the monthly CCSD Connections parent newsletter; and District Delegate, the monthly newsletter for CCSD employees.
The school district won Honorable Mention awards for: Financial Facts, the annual report of budget highlights; First Day Facts, the annual report of back-to-school highlights; and for its annual Teacher of the Year school winner profiles.
The Office of Communications is made up of Chief Communications Officer Barbara P. Jacoby, Supervisor Carrie McGowan, Coordinator Penny Dempsey and Administrative Assistant Anne Reed.
The Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools will recognize the honorees at the July School Board meeting.
