"I was very pleased with the quality of our student's work and the Judges thought the work showed creative thought and exceptional execution," said UM-Flint Anthony McGill, a lecturer IV in the Department of Communication and Visual Arts. "These students are well on their way to reaching the accepted professional standards of the field of advertising. Nothing speaks more highly than the fact that the advertising professionals at the American Advertising Awards were extending numerous offers for internships and jobs."

McGill is a College Connection board member of the American Advertising Federation of Greater Flint.
