Media Coverage
Media releases are submitted to appropriate local, regional, state, national media outlets to promote upcoming events, projects, achievements, programs, etc. All media releases are added to our news database for display on our website as well. Please contact Tammy Whaley at ext. 5210 with information.

Please note that this office cannot guarantee that a story will be highlighted by local media on broadcast news or in the newspaper. This office sends media releases regularly to the media, and then they decide what, if anything, will be featured.
