The two were recognized for Best Cover for Single Sports Program for the College Division. The entry included copies of the Jaguars’ three game-day programs for soccer, baseball and softball.

“It’s always a great honor to be recognized by your peers,” said Ebner. “We have a great working relationship with our marketing department and George does a super job working with us on our many graphic projects.”
