Natasha Mitchell, Family & Children’s Services (F&CS) communications specialist, has received a 2021 Bronze Quill Award of Excellence in journalism writing for the project “Greenwood Massacre,” which spotlighted the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre for Bartlesville Monthly Magazine.
“This project connects Bartlesville and Tulsa because some 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre survivors migrated and settled in neighboring Oklahoma towns following the event,” Natasha said. “For example, Viola Fletcher, one of last survivors, has lived in Bartlesville for many years and has descendants in the area.”
A long-time writer, Natasha has written for many regional and national publications including The Oklahoman, The Crisis Magazine and the Bartlesville Examiner Enterprise. Last year, Natasha obtained a 2020 Bronze Quill Award of Merit – Social Media Programs for Family & Children’s Services (F&CS) from IABC/Tulsa.
Natasha, who joined F&CS in 2018, handles the agency’s external social media channels and assists with internal and external content management. The Tulsa Chapter’s International Association of Business Communicators’ (IABC) Bronze Quill Awards recognize outstanding employee communications, public relations, media relations, community relations, government affairs and marketing communication efforts of IABC/Tulsa members and non-members alike. All winning entries will be posted online at www.TulsaBronzeQuill.com.
