Just braggin' again

that's what moms do.

So very proud of my youngest daughter Gillian. She'll be graduating this May from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a double major in Advertising and Graphic Design. Aside from her exceptional grades, she has had at least one, if not two, if not three jobs while carrying her full load of classes while attending SCAD.

One of her three concurrent jobs this past year has been the Art Director for the magazine District Quarterly. In September she received the Farce Award which is a SCAD traveling trophy she will pass on to this year's recipient. You can read the Fall issue here. This issue, which was also the inaugural issue, won 5th place honors in the Magazine Literary category, at the 88th annual Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisers National College Media Convention in Austin, Texas this pass December.

In January, Gillian was a finalist for a SCADDY having her copywriting entry chosen as one of the 100 out of 1500 entries to be on exhibit prior to and following the awards ceremony. A SCADDY, which honors excellence in advertising, is the only college sponsored event of it's type in the nation and is judged by industry professionals.

Gillian has also received a Bronze Student ADDY Award from the American Advertising Federation Savannah for the "Flow of Life" spread in the Fall issue of the District Quarterly.

snippet from the AAF website: "
With over 60,000 entries annually, the ADDY Awards are the world's largest and arguably toughest advertising competition. The ADDY Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types, creative by all sizes and entrants of all levels from around in the world. The American Advertising Federation, a not-for-profit, conducts the ADDY Awards across 200 advertising clubs and 15 districts. It is the only creative awards program administered by the advertising industry for the industry."

No wonder she doesn't call as much as she use to. ;o)

Love you Silly.
