The American Advertising Federation's Most Promising Minority Student Program was held at the NY Athletic Club this week and included industry immersions at Young & Rubicam Brands, New York Times, ESPN, and McCann-Erickson Advertising.

Only 50 students in the nation achieved this Finalist award. [They all got tickets courtesy of Publicis to see Hairspray Thursday evening on Broadway.]

Nicole LeReau is interviewing with several advertising agencies while in NYC. Sally Lok, another IC award winner, was hired in LA by MTV, a sponsor, so she couldn't attend.

(Gee, what a great reason to miss a party...).

CONGRATULATIONS to these amazing Parkies, who once again prove we're the best and the brightest, and to Professor Scott Hamula, who once again proves that great faculty can inspire great students.
