Leading advertising, branding and digital marketing agency Austin & Williams announced today that two of its clients, Molloy College and TCI College of Technology, have each won three awards for ad and branding campaigns created by A&W in the 32nd Annual Educational Advertising Awards (EAA), sponsored by Higher Education Marketing Report. Molloy College received a gold medal in the TV Single category, a bronze medal in the Total Advertising category and an award of merit in the Integrated Marketing category for the campaign “Where. Here.” The campaign combined branding, print ads, broadcast, outdoor, digital and website work to leverage the college’s ranking as Money® magazine’s #1 Value All-Star in the nation. This was the first phase of a new strategy designed to elevate the Molloy’s brand and generate awareness of this prestigious accolade to a more expansive audience of influencers. “We handed Austin & Williams a challenging assignment and they delivered brilliantly,” said Ken Young, Assistant Vice President, Marketing and Public Relations at Molloy College. “Our hard-earned ranking by Money® magazine was an opportunity that we couldn’t let slip – and Austin & Williams helped us take full advantage of it to drive our enrollment and our national reputation.” TCI College of Technology received gold medals in the Total Recruitment and Total Advertising categories and a silver medal in the Integrated Marketing category for the campaign “Get to TCI.” The campaign leveraged digital, direct marketing, email marketing, outdoor, and a website to deliver a strong enrollment strategy that would drive in students even faster. Austin & Williams created a campaign that, within eight weeks of launch, drove more than 5,850 qualified leads, yielding a cost-per-acquisition of only $144.02—42 percent below the industry average. “Standing out in a city as crowded as New York isn’t easy, and competing for students who have their choice of multiple colleges can be daunting,” said Dr. George Santiago, President of TCI College of Technology. “As we evolve into a college for a new generation of student, we know the strategy Austin & Williams has given us will serve us well into the next phase of our growth.” This year’s award-winning campaigns were created by the same Austin & Williams team that brought home three gold, silver and bronze medals and a Best in Show award from the EAA in 2016. “We are elated to again be recognized for our compelling and creative work on behalf of our clients Molloy College and TCI College of Technology,” said Rick Chiorando, CEO of Austin & Williams. “Awards like these only happen as the result of a true agency/client partnership, hours of hard work and dedication to our clients’ goals. We are thrilled for them and for us.” About the Educational Advertising Awards The Educational Advertising Awards is the largest, oldest and most respected educational advertising awards competition in the country. This year, more than 2,250 entries were received from more than 1,000 colleges, universities and secondary schools from all fifty states and several foreign countries.

Cloe D. Adrian has completed her new book “The Rose”: a heart-felt collection of poems following a girl's growing pains as she starts out with dating and ends with falling in love. Cloe lives in Long Island, NY with her husband, Steve and her two children, Isabella and Sophia. She currently works at a local hospital, St. Francis Hospital. She writes poetry and short stories. She has been writing since she was fourteen years old. She has a BSN in Nursing from Molloy College and a BA in Psychology from Adelphi. She is looking to get a Masters in the near future. She is a reiki master and an intuitive psychic healer. She loves to do yoga and do kickboxing. She likes to eat, clean, and get plenty of exercise. Her interests are drawing, painting and reading. You can find her biking and hiking in the outdoors with her family and children. She believes that “Sometimes we know things to be a lot deeper than what they appear to be. It is a spiritual awakening. This is the time of the shift. We chose to incarnate here during a great shift. We are all shifting into higher states of being. We will begin to vibrate to higher levels as we become more crystalline". Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, C. D. Adrian’s honest and memorable poems highlight what growth. The poems span over 20 years starting as early as 1993. "The Rose" talks about what it is like to be thrown away and then be put back together again, talking of a rebirth, and transitioning from young girl to adulthood and the people that are affected in the process. These are the people that affect us and the ones we affect. In the book she knew she would meet him before she met him. She wrote about and remembered him before he came to her life. Cloe concludes, "Sometimes we just have to fumble and find our way to where we should be a few times. It is normal to stumble and fall as we find our way. This, I hope, should make it ok to feel the way we do”. Readers who wish to experience this powerful work can purchase “The Rose” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.

The International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) is pleased to award a $500 scholarship to student Kelley Cordeiro from Seaford, NY, for the 2017-2018 academic year. Cordeiro is one of four students from across the nation to receive a scholarship award from the IETF. The IETF scholarship will help Cordeiro achieve her Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership for Diverse Learning Communities at Molloy College in Rockville Center, NY. As an experienced student, teacher, mother and wife, Cordeiro understands the difficulty of balancing a busy life. On top of managing just everyday life, she also faces the task of doing it all with essential tremor (ET). Being diagnosed with ET in her thirties didn’t stop her from returning to school to being a teacher and earn her Master’s in Education. As part of her coursework, she had to deliver lessons in front of her professors and peers which only exacerbated her tremor. “During one of my particular presentations, my professor stopped me midway saying, ‘how are you ever going to go on a teaching job interview if you can’t stop trembling?’”, Cordeiro said. “Not only did I feel humiliated, but the unwanted attention of his comments just made my tremor worse.” Despite this, she finished the presentation and earned an A in the course and achieved and overall 4.0 GPA at graduation. Now as she begins her Doctoral studies in Education at the age of 49, she sees her tremor progress, but refuses to let it hold her back from achieving her dreams. “I hope to be an even stronger advocate for my students and also an example for my own children that commitment and determination can help you overcome any obstacles,” Cordeiro said. Essential tremor is a neurological condition that affects more than 10 million Americans. ET causes rhythmic shaking of the hands, head, and voice. ET is often misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease, although eight times more common. ET is characterized by action tremor, making everyday tasks such as eating, drinking, and writing difficult if not impossible. There is no cure for this life-altering condition. IETF scholarships are awarded to qualified students of all ages who have been diagnosed with ET, to lessen the burden of higher education. The scholarship can be used for supplies, books or tuition at licensed, accredited institutions of higher education (including trade schools) and are paid directly to the educational institution. For more information about the IETF scholarship program, please visit http://www.essentialtremor.org/about-the-ietf/scholarships. About The International Essential Tremor Foundation: Headquartered in Lenexa, KS, and founded in 1988, the International Essential Tremor Foundation is the leading organization in the world dedicated to those affected by essential tremor. The mission of the IETF is to fund research that will find the cause of essential tremor and lead to better treatments and a cure, increase awareness about ET, and provide educational materials, tools and support to healthcare providers, the public, and those directly affected by ET. The IETF has distributed more than $1 million in research grants, to fund numerous promising studies, in the search for the cause of ET. The Foundation has hosted numerous community awareness events across the U.S. to provide those affected with the basic knowledge necessary to become their own advocate when seeking treatment. And, the IETF also provides assistance to a vast network of support groups around the world.
