The Marketing and Communications Department at Cuesta College was recently honored with three awards from the Community College Public Relations Organization, a statewide professional development and service organization that promotes excellence in community college public relations.
The college was awarded first place for a performing arts campaign to promote a theater production, second place for a college brochure, and third place for a veteran suicide prevention awareness video and message.
Over the next year, the foundation plans to convert its dance, music, art and theater facility, which will save the nonprofit $800 a month in electrical costs, according to a news release from the foundation. The savings will help PRYAF provide free visual and performing arts classes year-round.
Katie Skiff of Cayucos was recently initiated into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society, according to the chapter’s website.
Skiff was initiated at Westmont College.
Thomas Bateman of Nipomo has graduated from Trinity College in Deerfield, Illinois, with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy.
