Fourteen student ADDYs were awarded to CCU students at the annual awards ceremony held in Myrtle Beach Feb. 18.

CCU senior Lisa Tyree took top honors as she was awarded Best of Show and also a Gold ADDY for her poster called "His and Hers Deconstruction." In addition, Tyree received a Gold ADDY for her Old Bicycle Company logo.

Junior Kayla Looysen was awarded three Gold ADDYs for her packaging, logo and poster work. Seniors Barbara Astrini and Allie Tague also picked up Gold ADDYs for their posters. Students who received Silver ADDY awards include Molly French, Dani Brass and Alecia Lewis.

Three publications from the University nabbed ADDY awards, including Archarios (Gold), the student literary art magazine, the student-produced Tempo Magazine (Gold) and Tapestry Magazine (Silver), which is produced by the University's Department of English.

The prestigious Student ADDY awards are presented for the most outstanding student work in the region. The region includes the Florence, Georgetown and Myrtle Beach areas as well as Wilmington, N.C. The gold winners of the regional ADDYs will now be forwarded to broader district competition and a chance to compete for national recognition and awards.
