Flanery receives Rising Star Award from national council

Posted Date - 10/22/20
The National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) has awarded Hannah Keller Flanery, UACCB communications and marketing coordinator, the Rising Star Award.

In the short time she’s been on campus, Hannah Keller Flanery has been instrumental in the marketing plan at UACCB. She’s completed a variety of projects, including:

  • Introducing a revamped viewbook to better reflect the student populations the college wished to recruit.
  • Updating program listings.
  • Creating a tool for students to review their annual tuition.
  • Expanding campus communications to include new social media outlets.

During the summer, she facilitated and launched a new UACCB website with a digital enrollment campaign that has been highly successful for fall 2020.

Flanery is a great proponent of NCMPR, and her membership has never been passive. After her first conference, she became actively involved as a presenter, Medallion judge and Paragons judging coordinator.

On top of her work as Arkansas state rep for NCMPR, Flanery presented at District 4’s 2019 conference in Albuquerque. She and three student ambassadors — two who had never been out of the state — presented about UACCB’s student ambassador program, including the successful weekly campus event videos.

“When I think of Hannah, I think of someone who is ethical, hardworking and honorable,” says Deborah Frazier, UACCB chancellor and Flanery’s nominator. “Everything she does is above board and first class. Hannah’s ability to gleam best practices has led to UACCB’s success.”

Flanery constantly shares her knowledge and speaks with students about the exciting possibilities in communication and marketing. She discusses the joy she finds in bringing an idea to life and sharing others’ stories. Her passion about her profession shines, and she carries the torch of NCMPR into UACCB and the state of Arkansas.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that he will not renew the statewide mask mandate that expires at midnight tonight; however, school districts, private businesses, and medical facilities may still require patrons to wear masks as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19 under the revised guidelines. The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols on campus through the end of the spring semester. During its meeting on Friday, March 19, 2021, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee discussed the topic of continuing the mask mandate on campus after the statewide mandate expires March 31. Campus constituents, including representatives from the faculty senate, staff senate, Student Government Association and the cabinet were involved in the discussion. It was agreed that continuing to follow mask use and social distancing protocols was in the best interest of the campus community.


On Friday, March 26, 2021, the campus reported its fifth straight week of having zero positive self-reported cases of COVID-19 associated with the campus. Our students, faculty, and staff have shown outstanding diligence in wearing face coverings and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The campus community is asked to continue in its diligence to keep members of campus safe and healthy, not only for the benefit of campus but our community as well.
