CPE initiatives receive awards

Two Council on Postsecondary Education initiatives, "Transfer Madness" and "Project Graduate," received top awards from the Kentucky Thoroughbred Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America in May. All the public universities, KCTCS and AIKCU institutions participated in the success of both events held last year.

The awards program recognizes exceptional communications and marketing projects. Sue Patrick, director of communications and marketing, and Gabrielle Gayheart, communications and Web initiatives coordinator, received the awards.

 

Safety awards presented

June, recognized as National Safety Month, is a fitting time for the Executive Safety Advisory Committee (ESAC) to announce safety winners for calendar year 2014.  A ceremony was held at the KY State Office Building on June 30, 2015. Plaques were presented to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Education & Workforce Development Cabinet, Energy and Environment Cabinet, Finance and Administration Cabinet, Labor Cabinet, Personnel Cabinet and Department of Military Affairs and a combined 137 certificates were awarded to these winners for their commitment to workplace safety and employee education. Reduction in the number of work-related accidents and illnesses helps to reduce worker's compensation costs and improve employee productivity and morale. Find a list of winners, and photos here.
