Success Network Logo Design Winner Announced

In February, the Nash Community College Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Marketing Team launched a logo design contest for NCC’s Success Network. NCC students, alumni, and team members were all encouraged to participate.

After careful deliberation, Advertising and Graphic Design student Joshua Edwards was announced the winner and awarded $150 for his submission. “The Marketing Team was pleased with the winning entry for its simplicity and appeal,” said NCC Humanities & Social Sciences Department Chair, QEP Director Lisa Cooper.

“Coaching is often a way of empowering people, which is why I chose to incorporate a power symbol as a representation of that element. I also found that a bold, powerful font worked best for the main body of the logo to further the idea of success, the primary goal of the program,” said Edwards.

The vision of the Success Network is to connect students with services and resources to support their success through the guidance and mentorship of a success coach from application to graduation. The Success Network will provide the College an opportunity to address gaps and connect students to the help they need when they need it.

When asked about his winning entry, Edwards said, “It was a lot of fun designing it, and it is a real honor to have been chosen. I am grateful for the opportunity to have done so.”

As part of the reaffirmation for accreditation, member institutions of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC) are required to create a Quality Enhancement Plan during its decennial review. The plan recognizes key issues identified by institutional assessments focusing on student learning outcomes, or the environment supporting student learning. Institutions must prove they are capable of initiating, implementing, and completing the QEP.
