STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State is among a small group of Southeastern colleges and universities to win a “Best of” CASE District III Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

The MSU Foundation’s 2020-21 Annual Report is a winner in the Fundraising/Annual and Fund Reports category, along with the Office of Public Affairs’ 2021 national commercial in the Video/Commercial category.

CASE “Best of” district awards honor the most outstanding programs and individuals of the organization’s eight U.S. regions.

The MSU Foundation shifted previous years’ formatting to create a new annual report publication worthy of a keepsake. The MSU OPA national commercial connects MSU baseball’s 2021 College World Series Championship win with academic success in an expansive attempt to better recruit in-state and out-of-state students.
