Quyen Tong, a sophomore advertising major, has been selected as a recipient of this semester’s O. Joe Russell scholarship. The scholarship is sponsored by the AAF (American Advertising Federation) Tenth District, which encompasses Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. The scholarship winners were awarded at the Tenth District Annual Convention in Tulsa during the Student Reception, April 11, 2013. Quyen will receive $2500 towards her tuition next year.
AAF-District 10 endorses two $2,500 scholarships which are designed to recognize, promote and encourage academically talented students in advertising-related disciplines, helping them to complete their education. Quyen was one of only two students selected to receive this award, competing against applicants from four states and other stellar advertising programs. TAI is thrilled to have Quyen’s talents recognized with this prestigious scholarship.
