EMMITSBURG - Michael E. Diegel of Westminster recently was promoted to director of public affairs at Mount St. Mary's College in Frederick County.
He formerly was assistant director of public relations for media relations.
In his new position, Diegel will be responsible for marketing the college's image to all its outside constituents through publications, advertising and story placement in both college-produced and outside media.
"I'm enthusiastic about the broad new charge Mike has agreed to accept," Mount St. Mary's President Robert J. Wickenheiser said. "I'm confident that he'll do for the entire institution what he has so remarkably done already for areas such as faculty accomplishments and the core curriculum."
