New Bern, N.C. – The City of Greenville was among 23 North Carolina governments to earn recognition in the 11th North Carolina City & County Communicators’ (NC3C) Excellence in Communications Awards. The City of Greenville won three awards, two first place and one second place award.

The awards were presented on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at the NC3C’s annual Spring Conference in New Bern. One hundred seventy-eight entries were received, with many categories having the winners determined by one or two points.

“Our organization is full of city and county government communicators who are excellent at what they do.

The City of Greenville won first place honors in the TV or Video Instructional Video category for its Red Light Safety Camera video that detailed the purpose of the cameras and how they work. Communications Technician Kelvin Thomas produced the winning entry in collaboration with the City of Greenville Police and Public Works Departments.
