SJCC Marketing & PR Wins 5 Statewide Awards

San José City College’s Department of Marketing and Public Relations received five awards from the Community College Public Relations Organization (CCPRO) for work completed in 2019. This brings to 12 awards, including five for first-place, that SJCC has earned from CCPRO in the last three years.

The competition is exclusive to all California Community Colleges and Districts. Congratulations to Evergreen Valley College and the San José-Evergreen Community College District for their CCPRO awards.

The excellent work could not have been completed without the talent of our former graphics artist, and SJCC international student Priti Desai, and our collaborators at Milagro Marketing.
