School public relations professionals across the state were honored today for the products of their craft during the North Carolina School Public Relations Association’s (NCSPRA) annual Blue Ribbon Awards for Effective Communications celebration at the O. Henry Hotel in Greensboro.  Included in the list of winners is Jodie Bryant, Director of Public Relations, for Hoke County Schools.  Hoke County Schools received nine Blue Ribbon awards in six categories (digital media engagement, electronic media, photography, image/graphic  design, publications, and special events/programs) for design, content and versatility.  NCSPRA President Charlie Glazener, Executive Director of Community Relations & Communications for Asheville City Schools, said entries of the award winners rivaled the best work of public relations practitioners in any field.  “Blue Ribbon Awards are the highest honor in our organization and they validate the superior work done by my colleagues this year,” Glazener said.  “This roster of excellence is tangible evidence that NCSPRA's public relations professionals are among the Nation’s finest and that they are producing cutting edge communications and products that support their schools and school systems.”
