Walsh Earns Gold Award in Collegiate Advertising Awards

TROY, Mich., March 25, 2020 — Walsh has received a Gold Award in the Collegiate Advertising Awards (CAA) Program for its 2019 campaign, which was created in partnership with Soul Motor Co., headquartered in Detroit, MI. CAA is an elite, national program recognizing higher education organizations for excellence in communications, marketing, advertising and promotions of their schools.

Walsh’s submission competed against organizations of similar size from the United States and Canada, and was ranked by a panel of industry experts based on creativity, layout and design, functionality, message effectiveness, production quality and overall appeal. Awards were issued for entries that received high marks from judges and the Gold Award places Walsh in the top 5% of the nation for advertising excellence.

“We are very proud of this campaign and how it represents the Walsh experience,” said Patti Swanson, Vice President and Chief Marketing and Enrollment Officer. “It conveys an edge along with innovation and confidence – all qualities our alumni bring to their careers.”
