I am deeply honored to have been awarded the Silver Medal in advertising by the AAF NEPA at the American Advertising Awards dinner held at the Radisson Lackawanna Train Station in Scranton, PA on February 26, 2016 . My role as a board member for 10 years, as a teacher and mentor to graphic design students and my role in the community was recognized with a beautiful silver medal, a creative group of ads in the program, a funny and kind introduction by Paul DeLuca, DFA, last year’s Silver Medal recipient, and a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
The AAF’s Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 (2009 by AAF NEPA) to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, the AAF NEPA bestows this honor upon one outstanding member of the local advertising community.
And to make night even more special, I won a Silver American Advertising Award for a set of posters I designed for the University of Scranton.
