October 5, 2009

Longwood University received two awards at the South Region Conference of the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA), held Oct. 1-4 in Winston-Salem, N.C., attended by Billy Boulden, Assistant Director of Campus Activities, and six students.

Boulden and the students received the Outstanding Delegation Award, given to conference delegations that "excel in all areas of conference activity." The award is given to three delegations based on the number of delegates; Longwood's award was for the largest category, six to 10 delegates. "We were chosen the most otstanding delegation of all 95 delegations that attended," said Boulden, who is adviser to Lancer Productions (LP). Four of the six students who attended are LP members: Abby Whitlock (president), Rebecca Van Hook (comedy & novelty director), and Jessica Snyder and Jessica Prewitt (members of the Cultural Events and Traditions committees, respectively). Cam Patterson attended as SGA president, and graduate student Mariana Mosquera represented the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, in which she is a graduate assistant (the other students are undergraduates).

The other award was in the graphics competition for low-cost publicity designed by a faculty or staff member (not a student) at a member school. The award recognized the publicity for the "LP Movie Previews," designed by Boulden. NACA's South Region encompasses Virginia (south of metro D.C.), North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
