Albertus Magnus College Earns PRSA-CT Award

Industry-wide Recognition Reflects College’s Goal of Nothing Less Than Excellence

New Haven, Conn., November 19, 2020 Albertus Magnus College is pleased to announce that it is once again a Mercury Award winner for the Public Relations Society of America Greater Connecticut Chapter (PRSA-CT).  This year, the bronze level industry-wide honor is in the Tactics Video category for its Alumni Success Stories.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the ceremonial announcement was made via the PRSA-CT website and social media channels.

A special congratulations goes out to Jason Dunn ’18, Social Media Specialist at Albertus; Mike DeMatteo, principal of The Establishment, our video and digital content vendor; and Albertus student Alex Mitchell ’21, Communications and Marketing Intern for their vision and production of these stories.

“Powerful storytelling is such an important part of what we at Albertus call these ‘physically distant, socially connected’ times. To earn this honor speaks volumes to our commitment to excellence.  It also demonstrates how an Albertus liberal arts education incorporates experiential learning as a key component of a student’s overall education – preparing them to take on the challenges of their chosen field.  In Alex’s case, when he graduates, he will have not one, but two industry award wins on his resume,”  said Albertus Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing, Andrea Kovacs.

Earlier this year, this video earned a Telly Award for video excellence.
