Waynesburg University has received two 2016 CUPPIE Awards from College and University Public Relations and Associated Professionals (CUPRAP), one gold and one bronze, for its in-house production of the Annual Report and the admissions newsletter.
The University was awarded a Gold CUPPIE for its 2013-2014 Annual Report, and Bronze for the December 2014 issue of its admissions newsletter, “Unscripted.”
“We are thrilled that our University Relations team was honored with this award,” said Heidi Szuminsky, Vice President for Institutional Advancement and University Relations. “Their commitment to excellence shines through in every publication they produce, but the recognition of this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication the team puts into every single aspect of their craft. We are proud of the job they’ve done and continue to do.”
The awards were presented at an awards dinner Thursday, March 10, at Hotel Hershey, in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
This year, CUPRAP received 380 entries for the CUPPIE awards.
