Thomas Hamm II, visual communi-cations manager for the division and
project design manager, accepted the award on Jan. 23. Hamm coordinated
the design of a new, 49-page, full-color annual report with Orangeburg
publisher, Sun Printing.
“I’m very pleased to receive this award on behalf of the division and
everyone involved in contributing to our first annual report,” said
Hamm, who has been with MUSC for about a year and has more than 20
years of printing and design experience.
Valerie West, Ed.D., associate provost for Education and Student Life,
also praised Hamm and their staff for his efforts.
“As a relatively newly configured unit, we wanted our first annual
report to represent the division’s commitment to excellence and
service, and reflect the dedication of all of our staff and each of our
units,” said West, who manages the division. “I am especially gratified
that it was designed by our own staff, most notably Mr. Thomas Hamm, as
he represents the talent and quality of our people. We are so proud of
Thomas and thrilled to receive this recognition for our report.”

awards and two Awards of Excellence. Other Columbia area printing
companies also recognized in multiple categories include Wentworth
Printing Corporation, Service Printing, Professional Printers and
Winners were announced Jan. 19 at the 41st Annual PICA Awards
