Community Service

Thank you to ALL of our members and supporters of AWM over the past year as your support helps fund the scholorships we are able to provide to two college students each year!

We want to congratulate 2018 recipients of the Irene Runnels –Paula McStay $5,000 scholarships, Alissa Llort & Bethany Pfeiffer

Alissa Llort is also one of our recipients for this year’s Irene Runnels- McStay Scholarship.  Alissa is currently attending SMU with a major in advertising specializing in strategic brand management and a  minor in psychology.  She plans on graduating in May 2019.  She is currently the marketing director at the Women Ambassadors Forum, a student run non-profit organization that aims to  empower women  globally through an annual forum held at SMU.  In this principal role she leads her team in branding, graphic design, pr, social media and marketing.  Alissa has maintained a 3.75 GPA  while being a full  time student and employed at the Hunt Institute as an advertising manager and external affairs team lead.  Alissa feels that Irene Runnels and Paula McStay have truly paved the way for the next generation of women to chase their professional advertising dreams.  Alissa’s personal goal is to continue to  empower  young female leaders based on her college experiences.

Bethany Pfeiffer is one of our recipients for this year’s Irene Rennels- Paula McStay Scholarship.  Bethany is currently attending Baylor University in Waco, Tx with a major in Marketing & Corporate Communications.  She plans on graduating in May 2019.  This year The Baylor Hankamer School of Business recognized and awarded Bethany a trip to attend Adweek in NYC.   This honor  was granted by Bethany’s college peers due to her classroom accomplishments & class dialogue involvement. Bethany holds a 3.6 GPA while being a full time student, working multiple part time jobs,  holding two campus leadership roles and volunteering at local charities.  After her graduation next spring, Bethany plans to enroll in a graduate marketing program to master her marketing skills.
