KILLEEN (March 26, 2013)--Central Texas College will announce their five finalists for mascot and also hold a “casting call” for promotional branding on Wednesday.
The school recently launched a new branding campaign “Students of the Real World” to depict a variety of students who are managing work, family, changes of life and other obligations while getting their education.
The selected student “stars” have been featured on billboards, banners and the CTC website.
“Some of the students featured in the new ads include the current Fort Hood Soldier of the Year, one of our nursing program graduates, a soldier in the Warrior Transition Unit, a military spouse enrolled in our culinary arts program and a student working towards a high school diploma while, at the same time, earning college credits through our dual credit program,” a CTC spokesperson said.
On Wednesday, the featured students will be in the Anderson Campus Center to mingle with their peers and provide information on how they were selected.
A "casting call" will be held to meet new potential students of the campaign.
The event is intended to celebrate the new branding; however, students who auditioned for school mascot will also find out who the five finalists are.
Students and faculty are invited to the campus center beginning at 10 a.m.
Door prizes will be awarded and refreshments will be served.
It will wrap up around 2 p.m.
