Alcorn State’s Marketing and Communication Division wins CPRAM honors

The Division of Marketing and Communication at Alcorn State University brought home four awards from the College Public Relations Association of Mississippi (CPRAM) annual conference held in Oxford, Miss.

CPRAM is a consortium of public relations professionals employed at Mississippi’s public and private colleges and universities, as well as affiliated education agencies.

“I am so proud of our extraordinary team,” said Larry Orman, vice president of Marketing and Communication. “They are creative, dedicated professionals who selflessly put in long hours to help tell the remarkable story that is Alcorn. The recognition of their work reflects well on their wonderful talent and the institution they represent.”

Alcorn competed in the senior division, which includes four-year universities across the state of Mississippi.
