LARGO, Md. — Striving for the Extraordinary, the breakthrough documentary that chronicles a year in the experiences of male students in the Diverse Student Male Initiatives (DMSI) program at Prince George’s Community College (PGCC), has been recognized by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) with two District 1 Medallion Awards, which recognize excellence in community, technical and junior college marketing and public relations activities.

The film was recognized in College Promotional Video category and in the College Video Program category.  The awards will be presented at the Medallion Awards reception during the District 1 Conference, November 7, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel in Newport, RI. 

Striving for the Extraordinary, produced and directed by PGCC-TV's Angela Brown-Mathis and Marshall Johnson who served as associate producer and editor, has garnered tremendous support from both the college community as well as the media.  NBC4 featured DMSI’s founder, Brian Hamlin, and some PGCC senior administrators on their special human interest program called “Viewpoints” earlier this year.
