Angus Foundation Wins National Communication Awards
The National Agricultural Alumni and Development Association recognizes the Foundation’s efforts with two awards.
The Angus Foundation was honored June 13, 2011, for excellence in producing publications and communication projects at the annual meeting of the National Agricultural Alumni and Development Association (NAADA) in Lubbock, Texas.
Among the 48 total entries submitted by 14 institutions, including agricultural colleges, alumni associations and other agricultural organizations from across the U.S., the Angus Foundation received the following awards:
NAADA is a professional association that provides education and support for professionals, volunteers and student leaders who are dedicated to expanding the human resources and financial support for land-grant colleges of agricultural sciences and related programs. The awards competition was established to recognize outstanding publications and communication projects among the organization’s membership.
“To be recognized by one’s peers for outstanding work is the utmost compliment an organization can receive,” said Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “I give all credit to our talented professional staff and the dedicated volunteers who contributed their countless hours of time, energies and creative skills to helping the Angus Foundation provide for the benefit of our supporters the caliber of projects, events and publications resulting in the achievement of these prestigious awards.”
This is the seventh year the Angus Foundation has entered projects in the competition. The Angus Foundation has won awards in six of those seven years.
The Angus Foundation was established in 1980 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization to support Angus education, youth and research. To learn more about the Angus Foundation and the programs it supports, call the American Angus Association® at 816-383-5100 or go to www.angusfoundation.org.
