The Hill again wins gold
The Hill magazine was awarded two gold medals for overall excellence and staff writing by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in the District II 2013 Accolades program.
District II, the largest of the eight CASE districts, includes member institutions from Delaware, D.C., Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ontario, West Virginia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The gold award for excellence also went to St. Mary’s College of Maryland, silver awards to UMBC and Drew University, and a bronze award went to University of Delaware for its research periodical.
The gold medal for staff writing, McDaniel’s third consecutive award, recognized five articles as follows: “A Vintage Year for Wine Research,” by Director of Communications Peggy Fosdick; “Spy Catcher,” “Hear Him Roar,” “What’s Up Doc?” and “First Thing First,” by Managing Editor Kim Asch.
“We are so proud of this recognition and thank our readers for their consistent support and feedback to keep our magazine on its upward trajectory," said Joyce Muller, associate vice president of Communications and Marketing and editor of The Hill.
Added Asch: “Our college community – on campus and beyond – is brimming with amazing stories. It’s such a privilege to be in the position to share them with 26,000 readers of the magazine.”
Muller and graphic designer Edie Buchanan also received a bronze medal in the visual design category for their creation of the Global Initiatives Guest Lecture poster. The College’s 2011-2012 annual report, “Changing Lives for a Changing World” received honorable mention in the institutional reports category.
In the 27 years since its debut issue, The Hill has been recognized numerous times by CASE, the premier organization for educational institutions and advancement professionals who work on their behalf. Following a comprehensive redesign, The Hill was recognized in the 2008 CASE international Circle of Excellence program with a bronze award for general excellence.
All award recipients will be recognized at the District II annual conference in Pittsburgh, March 3-5, 2013.
