GAA, Students and Morehead Earn District CASE Awards

The GAA’s alumni relations programs and the Carolina Alumni Review have been recognized with three awards in the 2009-10 Southeastern District competition of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and two GAA student-related programs have been recognized with four recent awards.

The GAA earned an Award of Excellence for overall alumni relations programs.

The Review won a Special Merit Award in the category of alumni magazines and also earned an Excellence in Feature Writing award for “Worn Pages, Tough Spine,” a photographic essay and feature story on the modernization of Wilson Library that was published in January/February 2009. The feature is available online to Carolina Alumni members.

The Morehead Planetarium and Science Center also won a CASE Award of Excellence in the category of external relations involving CD-ROM, DVD, flash publications and other electronic communications.

In separate competition, two GAA student programs — the Student Membership Leadership Council and the Order of the Bell Tower — won awards from CASE’s Affiliated Student Advancement Programs.

The Student Membership Leadership Council won:

  • Outstanding Internal Program — Restructuring of the Student Membership Program Leadership Team; and
  • Outstanding Organization — UNC General Alumni Association Student Membership Program.

The Order of the Bell Tower won:

  • Outstanding Internal Program — New Member Retreat; and
  • Outstanding Adviser — Kat Butler ’07. Butler is the GAA’s coordinator of student programs.

The Student Membership Leadership Council’s Erin Collums was elected to serve as the North Carolina state representative for CASE ASAP for 2010-11. Collums’ duties include planning and hosting the state conference in Chapel Hill in January 2011.
