CCC Dean Named NCMPR’s ‘Communicator of the Year’

 Shelly Parini, Clackamas Community College’s dean of College Advancement, was named the 2012 Communicator of the Year by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR). The honor was presented to Parini at the recent NCMPR District 7 regional conference in Salem in October.

Parini joined CCC six years ago as the dean of College Advancement. While serving as dean, she has successfully organized and led efforts on major college initiatives and marketing efforts including the following: CCC’s 40th anniversary celebration, the Military Family Scholarship Endowment, the Yellow Ribbon Career and Benefits Fair, spearheading the use of social media, developing the “Imagine Clackamas” community engagement initiative, and increasing collaboration with students in marketing and communication.

While working full time at CCC, Parini also has excelled in her academic studies. In June 2012 she was awarded a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies degree from Marylhurst University.

The NCMPR Communicator of the Year Award honors a two-year college marketing professional who has demonstrated special leadership or ability in college communications. It is awarded annually in each of NCMPR's seven districts, and district recipients automatically become a nominee for the national award, which is presented at the national conference in March 2013.
