EVERETT, Wash. – Jacqueline Quiroz, a student in the Edward R. Murrow College Communication at Washington State University, has been selected to attend an exclusive diversity event hosted by the American Advertising Federation.

The American Advertising Federation’s Most Promising Multicultural Student program (MPMS) was started in 1997 to honor the nation’s top students of diversity and give them a head start in networking and training for the advertising industry.

The event will be held Feb. 12-15 in New York City. Quiroz will have the opportunity to meet representatives from high-profile companies at the MPMS Recruiters Expo. Past participants include PepsiCo, General Mills, Bloomberg and Google.

The agenda for the event also will include industry immersion workshops at major media and ad agencies, interview sessions, and a leadership panel hosted by Publicis Groupe. The final day of the event will conclude with the students attending a Broadway showing of “The Lion King.”
