CASE Honors Bush School Communications

April 15, 2009

The Bush School’s Communications Program recently was honored at the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District IV conference with four awards.

Achievement awards were presented to Executive Associate Dean Sam Kirkpatrick for the Bush School’s YouTube channel in the World Wide Web category, the School’s print newsletter in the newsletter/tabloid category, and the merchandise marketing program in the specialty advertising category.

Director of Communications Susan Robertson, graphic designer Stanton Ware, and writer Penny Beaumont were recognized for their work on the newsletter while Ware and Robertson were awarded for the merchandise program.  Robertson, website administrator Matthew Henderson, and graduate students Mariam Chaudhry and Benjamin Sky Brown took the honors for the School’s YouTube channel.

A poster designed by Ware for the School’s recent Cold War Symposium received a special award for graphic design. 

“These awards from peers in the academic community are particularly meaningful,” said Kirkpatrick. “The Bush School communications professionals compete with outstanding peers from across the region, and we’re delighted that their exceptional work was recognized by CASE.”
