The Town of Garner has won three Excellence in Communications Awards from North Carolina City and County Communicators in the organization’s 2020 awards competition.

The Town earned first place in the category of promotional videos for a recruitment video for the Garner Police Department. Communications Specialist Adam Carroll filmed, directed and edited the video, and worked closely with the Police Department during the months-long project. Garner also won second place in the category of videography for Carroll’s work in the Town’s 2019 Year in Review video.

In addition, Garner won second place in the category of annual reports for the Town’s 2019 Popular Annual Financial Report. Communications Manager Rick Mercier teamed up with Finance Director David Beck on the publication.

“These awards in the video categories are a testament to the great work that Adam Carroll does for Garner day in and day out,” Mercier said. “Each of these award-winning projects also points to the superior level of collaboration we have among staff in all the departments in our municipal government. This is what good government looks like.”

The Town of Garner was among 21 North Carolina local governments to earn recognition in the awards competition. The awards were announced in a virtual ceremony June 24 due to the cancellation of this year’s annual NC3C Spring Conference. All 192 award entries were judged by communications professionals from the Minnesota Association of Government Communicators.
