The Williams-Qualls-Spratlen Award

Posted by mefa0707 on May 21, 2010

Whose faces would you put on the Mount Rushmore of minority marketing scholars?

The faces on our proverbial Mount Rushmores may differ, but Jerome Williams, Bill Qualls, and Thad Spratlen would certainly be on mine. These gentlemen have been mentors to me and to many other students over the years, and their particular dedication to minority students is unparalleled.

So, what does this have to do with you?

Funny you should ask.

The American Marketing Association Foundation has chosen to institutionalize the legacy of Drs. Williams, Qualls, and Spratlen by presenting a named award annually in their honor. The AMA Foundation wants you to nominate someone in the field who exemplifies the same commitment to mentoring students shared by the namesakes for this award. Part of our responsibility as members of this academic community is to carry on the legacy of individuals like Jerome Williams, Bill Qualls, and Thad Spratlen, and to make sure we honor those who do.

So please, visit the W-Q-S award page at the AMA Foundation website. Read the eligibility requirements and nominate someone today. The foundation has been gracious enough to extend the deadline for nominations until June 4th. So don’t put it off. Do it today.
