Charlotte digital marketing agency UNION is pleased to announce the first annual Kelly Somey Digital Marketing Scholarship. This scholarship honors a dedicated teacher and mentor by rewarding college-bound students who demonstrate a passion for creativity and an interest in pursuing a career in digital marketing. Each year, UNION selects a high school senior to receive a $1,000 scholarship to use toward their college tuition.
"We created the scholarship to support the next generation of digital marketing professionals," says Banks Wilson, President and Creative Director of UNION. "It's also a great opportunity to honor a former teacher and mentor of mine that played a pivotal role in my decision to pursue a career in digital marketing."
To qualify for the scholarship, candidates must be high school seniors and submit an essay describing their passion for creativity and highlighting any teachers that helped guide them toward a career in digital marketing. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2015. The winner will be announced on May 1, 2015.
