Videos that unveil the new Bearkat athletics rebranding, describe the Sam Houston State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and share the historical story of General Sam Houston as a Cherokee citizen, are among the SHSU videos that have been recognized in the 42nd annual Telly Awards.

The Telly Awards, the world’s largest honor for excellence in video and television content across all screens, is judged by top industry leaders from video platforms, television, streaming networks and production companies.

Stephanie Knific, director of SHSU University Marketing and Communications, believes the videos are successful, because, like all projects created by the department, they are more than just marketing – they define and convey what makes SHSU a great name in education.

“Each of the nineteen award-winning videos (including two People's Telly Awards) won this year, demonstrate the quality of content produced by videographer Mike Foster, along with all of our MarCom team, who work collectively with divisions across campus to share the stories and accomplishments of our university,” Knific said.

SHSU received the following 2021 Telly Awards:
