Graphic Designer Wins Paragon Award

Trevor Mize, graphic designer at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, was recently honored with a silver Paragon Award from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) in the category of Innovation in Technology. The awards were announced at NCMPR’s national conference in Savannah, Georgia in March.


Mize won the award for developing a digital Easter egg hunt last spring on the UACCM Web site. As part of the Easter egg contest, four digital eggs were hidden on the College Web site. Current students were sent daily clues on their campus e-mails and in turn used the clues to search for the hidden eggs. The contest was very well-received by students, who were offered prizes for being the first to find the eggs.
Mize is originally from Lamar, Arkansas, and he graduated from the UACCM graphic design program in 2002. The National Council for Marketing and Public Relations is an affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges, and is the only organization exclusively designed for marketing and public relations personnel from the country’s community, junior and technical colleges. The NCMPR's prestigious national Paragon Awards recognize excellence in communications. There are over 600 member colleges in the organization, and approximately 1500 Paragon entries were received in 44 categories.
