CCPRO Awards 2019

In 2019, the Office of Communications was honored with five awards from the Community College Public Relations Organization (CCPRO), the official professional organization of the marketing and public affairs departments for the state’s 144 community colleges. The awards were presented at CCPRO’s Annual Conference, April 9-12, in San Diego.

We received the following PRO awards (followed by judges' comments) for the 2017-2018 school year:

SBCC was recognized for its focus on social media in its overall marketing strategy and use of creative advertising campaigns using high-quality images and captivating taglines.

Second Place: Social Media Management
SBCC continued to increase its followers and engagement across each of its social media channels with high-quality, target-specific content, while informational posts about the college and community proved to be valuable resources for students and community members alike.

A talented SBCC student employee’s image of members from the campus ukulele club enjoying their practice on the west campus lawn perfectly captured the spirit of the college and its students.
