The University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication AdPR department awarded scholarships to four students for participating in the Moxie-Zenith / UGA Partnership Program.
The awarded students, Danielle Grinzaid, Srishti Mishra, Sierra Romeo and Hawk Young, applied and were carefully selected to participate in the UGA program for Publicis Media Groupe, a group of agencies dedicated to being leaders in global marketing, communication and business transformation.
After the selection process, the four chosen students prepared a presentation about the major impacts or themes they noticed throughout the program. Guy Abrahams, global strategic planning director at Zenith, and Claudine Cheever, executive vice president and head of strategy at Mediavest/Spark, provided input about themes during the student presentations.
The students continued the program by presenting their observations at Moxie in Atlanta. Based on the program feedback, the students’ performance impressed the Atlanta agencies. As a result, the students received a scholarship for their participation.
“I am very grateful to be one of the very few selected by Dr. Reichert and Dr. King for this opportunity. The people over at Moxie were more than welcoming and I thought it was really cool that we got a glimpse into their professional environment because it gave me a good sense of what it is like to work for a marketing agency in Atlanta” said Srishti Mishra, UGA student.
The program proved to be very effective, and Grady College looks forward to continued success in the future. For more information about student scholarship programs, visit the Grady College website.
