Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) received an award for outstanding achievement in communications from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR). MCTC received a bronze Paragon Award in the Electronic Annual Report category for its 2013 Community Annual Report.

The Annual Report featured highlights from each of MCTC’s five locations and was designed by Justin Dean, Media Designer. “This was the first year the College has released an electronic annual report, and we’re thrilled it has been a success. The transformation of traditionally printed materials into an interactive digital presentation has created an entirely new and engaging way for us to share our stories with the community,” said Justin.
