Communicator Earns National Recognition

Savannah Chandler earns nation recognition

Savannah Chandler, Walton EMC Natural Gas communications coordinator, has been honored for her work in the recent Cooperative Communicators Association (CCA) annual communications contest.

“To be recognized as a standout among the high caliber of CCA’s marketers and communicators is incredibly rewarding,”
said Chandler.

Chandler brought home first-place honors in the broadcast advertising category for the 2014 “Big Gift” campaign, third place in the campaigns and programs category for last year’s natural gas advertising campaign and third place in the photo feature category for her photo “Highline Cowboy.”

“I’m especially proud of winning the broadcast advertising category for our natural gas company,” said Chandler.

This year’s contest drew 703 entries from across the cooperative spectrum that includes energy, agriculture, telecommunications, food and banking. Chandler’s awards bring Walton EMC’s 20-year total to 64.

CCA is an organization of 350 professionals who communicate for cooperatives. Through professional development opportunities, association members excel in communications disciplines including writing, photography, video and graphic design.
