North Georgia Technical College was honored at the 2022 Paragon Awards by the National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) at the council’s national conference recently held in Orlando, Florida.
The college’s marketing team was awarded in the following categories:
- Gold: Successful Marketing or Recruitment Program for the team’s work on 8th Grade Color Tours

“I love to celebrate the outstanding work of our community college marketers,” says Jeff Ebbing, NCMPR’s 2022-23 president. “The creativity and hard work that went into the winning entries is on par with some of the best agencies in the country and is a testament to the talent and dedication of our members. These people are pros in every sense of the word.”
The 2022 Paragon Awards drew 1,726 entries from 323 colleges across the country and was judged by more than 40 professionals from the marketing and public relations industry.
NCMPR’s Paragon Awards recognize outstanding achievement in design and communication at community and technical colleges. It’s the only national competition of its kind that honors excellence exclusively among marketing and public relations professionals at two-year colleges.
“Our marketing team is very proud to be nationally recognized for our 8th Grade Color Tour marketing and recruitment campaign for the college,” said Amy Hulsey, Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Marketing at North Georgia Technical College. “Our vision for helping middle school students relate their unique personal talents to potential technical skill education and career possibilities really came to life, and we have had so much positive feedback on the entire campaign.”
North Georgia Technical College also won an additional five regional Medallion awards, including three gold awards, from NCMPR for the college’s work on the 8th Grade Color Tour campaign, the Industrial Technology Center Event Center brochure, college website redesign and promotional collegiate printed fans.
NCMPR supports the professional development of community college communicators, serving nearly 1,650 members from 550 colleges across the United States and Canada. It’s the only organization of its kind that exclusively represents marketing and public relations professionals at community and technical colleges and is one of the largest affiliates of the American Association of Community Colleges. NCMPR is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
