Story posted October 15, 1997

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Bowdoin College won two awards recently from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

The College won a bronze medal in the fund-raising video category. The video, developed for the New York launch of the New Century Campaign, was produced by Alison M. Dodson of Phippsburg, editor of Bowdoin magazine and director of communications projects; and Charles M. Leach, former assistant director of publications. The video was one of 31 entrants.

The New Century Campaign is a five-year, $113 million campaign to provide funds for a variety of campus programs. The campaign has already financed the construction of a $20.5 million science facility, a fitness center, and general campus maintenance. The campaign will pay for additional student financial aid, renovations of Pickard Theater and the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library, and new endowed faculty chairs. The campaign as of September stood at $91.7 million.

The College also was named to the CASE Circle of Excellence in Educational Fund-raising. Seventy-eight institutions were recognized from among 1,038 applicants for exemplary performance or significant improvement over a three-year period.
