WCU magazine named ‘Best of the Mountains’

The Magazine of Western Carolina University has been named “Best of the Mountains” for 2010 in an annual competition sponsored by the Public Relations Association of Western North Carolina.

Produced by WCU’s Office of Public Relations for alumni, faculty, staff, friends and students of the university, the magazine won top honors in the category of publications – magazines.

In announcing the award at the PRAWNC’s October meeting, radio personality Tammy Jones of Asheville radio station WOXL-FM shared judges’ comments about the year 2010’s issues of The Magazine of Western Carolina University.

“The judges commented ‘good photography is stand-out…better than the average university publication,’” Jones said. “Based on audience reaction and participation, the magazine seems particularly successful.”
