Nancy Bray Awarded AAF District Silver Medal Award

 PRESS RELEASE

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – The Tri-State Advertising & Marketing Professionals will present Nancy Bray with the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) District 9 Silver Medal Award at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, August 25th, at 11:30 am at Dexter BBQ in Cape Girardeau.

Out of a field of seven district-wide candidates, Bray was the clear choice by the AAF District 9 Board of Directors for the award. The Silver Medal Award recognizes men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering industry standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern.

Bray began her career as a teacher, taught and inspired numerous undergrads at Southeast Missouri State University, and was instrumental in the creation of the university’s multidisciplinary mass media department. In 1980, Bray became one of the first women in Southeast Missouri to work in healthcare marketing. During her 27-year career as director of marketing and communications at SoutheastHEALTH, Nancy developed the first full-service healthcare marketing department in the area, leading the hospital from traditional health related public relations into the current era of more aggressive healthcare marketing. Bray has also generously donated her time and talent over the years to organizations such as Meals on Wheels, the Community Counseling Center, the Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Southeast Missouri, and the Friends of the Cape Girardeau Public Library Foundation.

Tri-State AMP President Andrew Chronister stated “The Silver Medal is seen as one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon an advertising professional by his or her peers. We are proud to be honoring Nancy Bray for her dedication to the industry and to the Cape Girardeau area.”
