Junior
Bridgette Doig
of
San Diego, Calif., was named
Marketing Student of the Year
at the 50
th
Annual American
Marketing Association
conference. She also received
the $1,000 Gerald Koetting
Scholarship award at the
conference Feb. 25 in St. Louis.
The statewide competition
included more than 200 students.
Doig was required to submit a
resume, cover letter, an example
of her marketing work and a
letter of recommendation
from a member of WWU’s
marketing faculty.
“This is an amazing award
and honor for both Bridgette
and William Woods,”
Linda
Duke
, marketing instructor,
said, to which WWU President
Dr. Jahnae H. Barnett
replied,
“Well, it is not ‘too’ amazing once
you know our faculty, and once
you have spent a little time with
Bridget!! Congratulations to all.
Well deserved.”
“Our students at WWU are
exceptional students,” Duke
said.  “Bridgette Doig winning
first place at the AMA in St.
Louis is yet another example of
the outstanding students and
education that William Woods
has to offer.
Duke added, “This is the first
time in several years that WWU
has entered a marketing student
Bridgette Doig proclaimed
Marketing Student of the Year
By Molly Dougherty
into this competition and as her
marketing faculty, I am probably
more excited than Bridgette is!”
Doig prepared for the
conference through the real-
world experience of starting
her own website development
business, taking business classes
at WWU, and participating
in a marketing internship in
California last summer.
“WWU prepared me for the
conference by teaching me the
necessary skills for the business
and marketing world, teaching
me how to write resumes and
cover letters, and by having
classes that put students in a real
business setting,” said Doig.
Her favorite part of the
experience was learning the
various marketing techniques
each company used to launch
their products or services.
“I would recommend this
conference to everyone who
is interested in business and
marketing,” she said. “It is such
a great opportunity to learn
and network.”
