This might be the first time anyone has succumbed to advertising and actually received money.
Jordan Klumpp, a communications major focusing on advertising and strategic public relations, received a $3,000 scholarship from the American Advertising Federation of Baltimore (AAFB) Thursday, March 12 at the 2015 Addys Awards dinner.
Klumpp has experience working and interning for government communications, in-house corporate marketing, communications agencies and non-profit organizations. He is currently the public relations coordinator for a local non-profit called the Karina Association.
Each year the AAFB awards unrestricted scholarships in the amounts of $3,000; $1,500; and $1,000 to select students pursuing an undergraduate or post-graduate degree in advertising, communications, journalism, radio/TV, commercial art, photography, marketing, public relations or related advertising fields. Candidates are evaluated on their academic achievements, volunteer contributions to community and representative samples of work in advertising related disciplines.
