Three students in our Public Relations and Advertising program, have been announced as the Grand Prize winners for  the Arthur W. Page Society’s 2016 Case Writing Competition in Corporate Communications.
Meagan Cauley, Chelsea Michael, and Lizmarie Orengo, working with faculty advisor Matt Ragas, submitted the case study, “Starbucks, The Third Place on a Third Rail Issue: An Analysis of Starbucks’ Race Together Initiative”. From a very large and competitive field of entries, the judges unanimously agreed that Megan, Chelsea and Lizmarie’s submission met the published criteria and upheld the high standard that is associated with the Arthur W. Page Society to be awarded this award.
Our students and Prof. Ragas will be attending the Page Society’s annual spring seminar in New York City this April, to attend a dinner, award presentation, and a discussion of the findings in their case paper. The case study will also be published through the Society via their website.
We’re very proud of your accomplishment, Megan, Chelsea and Lizmarie!
