    Beverly Hodsdon of Joyce Design Solutions was recently recognized as a winner in the 34th Annual Educational Advertising Awards, sponsored by Higher Education Marketing Report. Hodsdon’s submission of Portsmouth Christian Academy’s “Total Recruitment Package” received a gold award.

    “I was honored to receive a gold medal in the 34th Annual Education Awards. Working with the team at PCA meant sharing the vision of an integrated Christian community. Everyone on our creative team understood what we were trying to achieve and helped make it possible. This award may have my firm’s name on it, but in truth it belongs to everybody who has worked to make this year’s publications campaign a reality. We continue to share the mission and core values of PCA, and hope our publications help guide families who will cross the bridge to a brighter future," stated Hodsdon, founder and president, Joyce Design Solutions.
