The students put in a tremendous amount of time, effort and creativity. I can tell them how terrific I think their work is, but it's nice to have the validation that comes from a very reputable organization such as the American Advertising Federation. Each of the students that won awards embody OBU's mission and pursuit of excellence. I feel privileged to have worked with them on these projects. Hearing our student's names at the Addy Awards gala was very exciting and it helps to further the reputation of OBU's division of Art & Design Oklahoma's creativity industry. The Addy Gala is attended by all of OKC's major ad and design firms.
