Introducing the Winner of the Bahr Scholarship
The inaugural Raising the Bahr Scholarship has been awarded to Erykah Labad, a graduate of the High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media. The judges found that Erykah has the work ethic, creativity and determination to pursue a successful career in advertising.
The scholarship – named for Virginia Bahr, whose over 65-year career at JWT inspired it – recognizes and supports one talented student each year who has the potential to make an important contribution to advertising. The student we have chosen for this year’s award has demonstrated through her accomplishments a personal commitment to furthering the cause of innovation in the advertising world. Erykah, we look forward to watching you grow and “Raise the Bahr” in your own career and in the future of advertising.
