Trojans Win Their CASE

USC’s Black Alumni Association was honored for its Paul R. Williams Exhibition/Program and PR campaign. Williams was an L.A. architect whose structures � including classic homes designed for Hollywood’s great stars � are still cherished.

USC has won one gold, two silver and two bronze awards in the District VII CASE 2004 Awards for Excellence.

CASE � the Council for Advancement and Support of Education � is the organization for advancement professionals who work in alumni relations, communications and development. It is the largest nonprofit education association in the nation.

Winning the gold was USC Trojan Family Magazine for “Outstanding Communications in Magazine Writing.”

The five articles that were honored were written by Diane Krieger, Eric Mankin from USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering, and contributor Carl Marziali, who joins the USC News Service in January.

“But the award really embraces all the wordsmiths who contribute to USC Trojan Family Magazine,” Krieger said.

“It’s a reflection of the overall excellence of writers across the university and the way that we can and should pull together to promote USC as a whole.”

USC’s Black Alumni Association won two silver awards, one for “Best Practices in Alumni Relations,” for its Paul R. Williams Exhibition/Program, and a second for “Best Practices in Public Relations or Government Relations,” for its Paul R. Williams PR campaign.

The BAA also won a bronze award for “Best Practices in Alumni Relations” for its alumni recognition via signature events campaign.

Also winning a bronze award for “Outstanding Communications: Student Recruitment Publication,” was University Publications and the USC Thornton School of Music for its Music Viewbook.
