Philadelphia Branding and Communications Firm Awards $3,500 in Scholarships, and Paid Internships, to Two Philadelphia High School Students

Millennium 3 Management, Inc. Continues 25th Anniversary Celebration With Writing/Public Speaking Contest

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - As part of its ongoing anniversary celebration, Millennium 3 Management, Inc., a Philadelphia-based, communications firm, recently committed higher-education scholarships, totaling $3,500, and paid internships, to Kierra Jones-Fogle, senior, The Academy at Palumbo, and Sunny Morgan, senior, Constitution High School, who were selected as winners of the firm's scholarship contest.

Held in conjunction with literacy organization Mighty Writers, the contest required high school juniors and seniors to submit a 300-word essay or 90-second video clip reflecting on "The Impact of Public Relations on Society." M3M President A. Bruce Crawley; Tim Whitaker, executive director, Mighty Writers; and Dr. David Allan, associate marketing professor, St. Joseph's University, served as contest judges.

Prior to receiving essay submissions, Millennium 3 Management, Inc. hosted an informational workshop at Mighty Writers' offices, in South Philadelphia, wherein principals and staff shared their career experiences, the importance of understanding messaging, and the impact of traditional and social media on the public.

Following the submission deadline, the company invited the scholarship winners, and their families, to its Center City offices, for a tour and conversation with M3M staff. Nikia Jones-Fogle, mother of Kierra Jones-Fogle, said, "This scholarship will be a blessing to my daughter, and will help to offset the cost of tuition, as she pursues college, next year. This contest opened her eyes to possible career opportunities, and will provide her with first-hand business experience. Kierra and I are truly grateful for this opportunity."

Commenting on the awardees, Crawley said: "Both Kierra and Sunny were courageous to tackle the subject of public relations, having no prior knowledge of the profession, and were successful in achieving the contest's theme. We are honored to award the funds, and to be able to offer real-world experience to the two winners."

Millennium 3 Management, Inc., an African-American-owned business, will continue its anniversary celebration for the duration of 2014, including the use of a commemorative 25th anniversary logotype in all correspondence; a new series of video profiles of the firm's principals and staff; a social media posting campaign via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, with posts related to small business success and survivability, businesses owned by people of color, and the role they play in the communications and branding professions; and an Open House event in the coming weeks, with tours of the company's office space, in One Commerce Square, here.
