Tammy Fogle has been selected as the 2021 Communicator of Achievement by the North Dakota Professional Communicators. The COA is the highest honor NDPC can bestow upon one of its members. It is presented annually to a member of NDPC and the National Federation of Press Women who has distinguished him or herself within and beyond his or her profession.
Fogle advances to the national NFPW competition, where COA judging is based on professional achievement, community service and service to NFPW and NDPC. She will be recognized at a virtual awards banquet on June 12.
Fogle graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications and began her professional career in broadcast working for WDAY. Her job involved directing evening newscasts, producing special video segments and assisting with production of client TV commercials. Tammy took a turn in the marketing world with the Fargo Park District where she was responsible for the entire district’s marketing efforts, learning quickly how to manage various marketing responsibilities as a one-woman show. She took those skills to North Dakota State College of Science, where she continues to hone her digital marketing skills with a focus on email marketing, website management, social media strategy and video production.
Fogle has been an active member of NDPC for 14 years. She has been entering her work in the annual communications contest since 2016, regularly earning first places that allow her work to be showcased at the national level. For the past three years, her work has earned a place in the NFPW Communications Contest. In 2018, Fogle joined the board of directors as Second Vice President for State and National Contests, a role she held for two years. Last year, COVID cancelled NDPC's annual spring conference so Fogle developed and executed a plan to highlight the work of NDPC winners on social media. She now is serving as the NDPC board secretary while also serving on the conference planning committee each year and the website redesign committee this year. Additionally, she is helping plan the national conference scheduled for 2022.
Fogle also is actively involved in her church and local 4-H organization, and she and her husband have three children.View COA list>>
