Anderson Students Take Addy's By Storm

The annual ADDY Awards are a big deal, especially in this region of the country. From the official press release:

Anderson University Graphic Design Students Take Top ADDY Awards

ANDERSON, S.C. – Six Anderson University senior graphic design students took top student awards at the annual 2009 ADDY Awards on February 28, including the “Best of Show” and “Judge’s Choice” awards. The students won a total of 10 out of the 20 awards, more than any other competing university. The ADDYs, which are sponsored by the American Advertising Federation of Greenville (AAF Greenville), honor excellence in advertising in an effort to cultivate high creative standards in the industry. Faculty advisors for the students include Professor Tim Speaker, assistant professor of art and event coordinator for AU students, Dr. Jo Carol Mitchell-Rogers, professor of art and chair of art department, and Professor Jason Smith, adjunct professor and art director at Erwin Penland in Greenville.

Pretty cool. The students did a great job, and I'm very proud of them!
