SMC Webby Awards

We've wrapped up another academic year, and College Communications and Web Services are again taking time to honor individuals and departments who have done amazing things on the web. This year, we've expanded our awards to cover social media efforts. Congratulations to all the winners, and a big thank you to all our content managers for a great year of online communications!

Sue Birkenseer accepts the SMC Webby Award on behalf of the library staff.

Student-run Success: Enactus

When students were forming an Enactus Team on campus, they wanted to make sure they had a great presence to get the word out. And that's exactly what they did

Enviable Embedders: Molly Matles and Melissa Young

Molly and Melissa wanted to find a way to easily share the location of NCAA watch parties with our alums. Google maps to the rescue! They added a pin for each watch party and embedded the map on a webpage. Check out the fantastic result.

Best New Web Artist: Casey McAlduff

Casey graduated in 2012 and immediately took over managing the webpages for the Center for Environmental Literacy and Commencement.  She handled both sections of the site phenomenally.

LinkedIn Luminary: Rachel Wood

Rachel has done a fantastic job managing the LinkedIn group for SEBA students and alums, providing them with relevant news and great networking opportunities.

Finest Facebook: Mekena McGrew

Mekena, also a Saint Mary's alum, worked with the Alumni Office to help shape a social media plan, including some great insights for Facebook.

Excellent Event: Ryan Lamberton

Ryan managed a volunteer RSVP form and a series of emails for The Great Bay Area Day of Service, and did a Gaeltastic job with all of them.

Busiest Bee: Liza Pierre

Liza Pierre, a student working with KSOE, made the most edits to the website last year (1,107 of them!). 

Form Master: Rolando Crisostomo

When we launched Salli forms this year, Rolando jumped right in and created many forms for the Admissions Office this year.

Site Transformer (individual): Jean Jackson

Jean worked to transform the Residence Life webpages. And her hard work paid off!

Site Transformer (department): Library

Every member of the Library team worked hard to transition their site into Salli, and helped us expand the capabilties of Salli along the way.
