Olivet students from the McGraw School of Business were awarded first place in the National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) on April 22 for their presentation at the D6 Regional competition, held in Mishawaka, Indiana. This is the first time Olivet has placed at NSAC.

“Over the years, a core group of student leaders emerged,” said School of Business professor, Chris Perez, “including Lindsey Shouse and Morgan Schaafsma. They exemplified not only talent but also grit from their freshman year onwards. Year after year, they persevered in the competition, consistently raising the bar, and laying the groundwork for building a championship-winning team.”

The presentation team also included Tristyn Grube and Grace Trumbull, with project support from Rebecca Barak.
