Winning for the “Go Green Communications Programs Efforts” category, Community Relations Officer Leigh Krehling said, “It is a huge honor to win this especially considering the competition. We are thrilled to see our go green efforts recognized! I can’t go without thanking Captain R20 and the Eco Queen for their efforts with this program. They make this program come alive and the kids love them.”
The Savvy Awards, held in conjunction with 3CMA’s Annual Conference, recognize outstanding local government achievements in communications, public-sector marketing and resident-government relationships.
