Grady College student receives Allen Rosenshine Minority Education Fund from BBDO Worldwide
Grady College student Lia Jordan recently received the Allen Rosenshine Minority Education Fund from BBDO Worldwide.
This fund was started as an initiative to increase diversity in the advertising industry. Applications are open to minorities, women, and persons protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act who wish to pursue a career in advertising. The scholarship is given to one intern at five of BBDO’s offices across the United States.
Jordan was awarded the fund for the Atlanta location where she will serve as an Account Management Intern for 10 weeks this summer. Though she will have a host of responsibilities, Jordan will be spending most of her time this summer serving clients like AT&T and Direct TV.
“I am extremely excited to be awarded this fellowship,” Jordan says. “I love the people I work with, many of them are UGA grads, and am looking forward to all of the projects I will be partaking in this summer.”
Jordan is originally from Champaign, Illinois. She is a Journalism and Communications major, and she is also pursuing a minor in Spanish. Jordan is expected to graduate in May 2018 and hopes to continue her work after graduation at an agency working with account management.
BBDO Worldwide is an advertising agency serving in 81 countries across the world.
