Medalcraft Mint medallion

Our opportunity: Produce a new president’s medallion in time for commencement

Commencement activities for 2022 were quickly approaching for Dyersburg State Community College in Tennessee when the president’s office contacted Medalcraft Mint with an urgent request. The institution’s new president, Dr. Scott Cook, needed a medallion in time for him to wear during ceremonies that were only a month ahead.

Medalcraft Mint’s sales representative and Edith Carlton, Dr. Cook’s certified administrative professional, discussed the general look of the medallion and the quick turnaround needed, and the Medalcraft team got right to work. Edith contacted us on Dr. Cook’s recommendation as our team had also produced the president’s medallion for his previous position.

The new 4-inch brass medallion that Medalcraft produced for Dyersburg State Community College features an antique finish, with intricate image detail and lettering within the college’s seal that adorns the front face.

“We submitted a rendering of our college seal and only three days later Medalcraft sent us back a quote and a proof of the artwork,” Edith explains. “They jumped through hoops to get the medallion completed for us, and it arrived two days before commencement.”
