      HAMMOND -- The Southeastern Louisiana University Office of Public Information won two awards, including a top award in graphic design, at last week’s district conference of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) held in Oklahoma City.

      The office was cited with a first place Grand Gold Award for the cover design of last year’s “Southeastern Magazine,” which focused on the 20th anniversary of Fanfare, the university’s fall festival of arts and humanities. The cover was designed by university graphic designer Terry Bahm.

      The office also received a second place Silver Award of Excellence in the category of audiovisual communications-multimedia programs for the DVD “Experience Southeastern,” which was produced in cooperation with Southeastern Auxiliary Services. The DVD, which is used in the university’s student recruitment campaigns, focuses on services offered through Auxiliary Services, including campus housing, food service, bookstore and textbook rental service.

      “Experience Southeastern” was produced by Auxiliary Services Marketing Director Robin Parker, and directed and edited by Southeastern videographer Steve Kleyle.

      Director of Public Information Rene Abadie accepted the awards on behalf of the university.

      CASE is an international association of professionals involved in educational communications and marketing, fundraising and development, and alumni relations. The Southwest District IV includes nearly 300 institutions from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mexico, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
