Clark College Foundation podcast recognized

The Columbian

CENTRAL PARK — An episode of Clark College Foundation’s Penguin Chats podcast won a Spotlight Award from the Oregon chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. The episode, “Farewell to Clark’s 13th President,” “exemplifies former Clark College President Bob Knight’s compassion for students by detailing the trajectory of one young man’s life who faced a dismal future until he met Knight,” according to a news release about the award. The award is a “benchmark for best practices in communications around the country,” according to the release. Penguin Chats is in its second season. Other topics covered in the series include the teaching and cooking styles of two of Clark College’s chefs; local educators exploring equity, inclusion and curriculums of humor in early childhood education; and the process to select the college’s 14th president. The foundation, an independent nonprofit, was honored at a ceremony at the Exchange Ballroom in Portland. Listen to the podcast at or on Google Play, iTunes, SoundCloud, TuneIn or Spotify.
