Advertising Students Named AAF’s “Most Promising”

Mad men, take note — the future of the industry is here at JWU. The American Advertising Federation (AAF) has selected the 50 “Most Promising Minority Students” in the country, and two Johnson & Wales University seniors made the cut.

Providence Campus student Joy Liu and Stephanie Garcia of the Denver Campus are both finalists for the AAF award, which salutes minority students “deemed exceptional by their college professors and advisers.”

Joy was also on last year's Ad team, which placed third at Nationals. Additionally, student Adeola Oyedele made the AAF’s honor roll.

In February, the students will celebrate their recognition at the “Building Bridges for Our Future Luncheon” in New York City.
