SADOE Member Wins TMCC Alumnus Of The Year

Congratulations to SADOE Member Courtney Meredith who was recently selected for Truckee Meadows Community College’s Alumnus of the Year.

She graduated from TMCC High School, received her AAS degree at TMCC, and carries numerous certifications and degrees in Graphic Design, Communications, Digital Media, Arts, and Marketing. Courtney is the CEO, Senior Design Strategist, and Creative Director of Design on the Edge, a boutique family-owned design firm and agency co-founded with her husband, Chris, a previous recipient.

Alumni of the Year serve as ambassadors of TMCC to their communities, and represent how far a TMCC education can propel a student into their future. Every spring, TMCC collects nominations for the title of Alumna/us of the Year, which is selected by a committee of faculty, staff and community members. At Commencement each year, the Association bestows this honor to an individual who demonstrates excellent service to TMCC and to the Reno/Sparks community. She will be honored at TMCC’s Commencement Ceremony on Friday, May 12 at Lawlor Events Center

Courtney and her family’s agency, Design on Edge, have received numerous marketing and advertising awards over the years and she is former recipient of the Silver Thistle (Scot of the Year) Award from our Scottish cousins in the Nevada Society of Scottish and is a past recipient of SADOE’s Irish Person of the Year.
