Hiram – The Communications Factory, Hiram’s only advertising agency, is proud to announce its selection of Jennifer Hall, as the firm’s tenth college scholarship recipient. Ms. Hall, a senior at Jefferson Area High, earned the $1,000 award from the Factory to help offset some of the costs associated with her college education.

Chosen from a large field of highly qualified applicants from across Northeast Ohio, Hall demonstrated a great knack for balancing the academic rigors and extracurriculars of high school with her passion for all things dairy. Jennifer was the President of her local 4-H Club, works at Springer Dairy Farm, was the Ashtabula County Dairy Princess, while also serving as the president of her school’s Student Senate and Academic Challenge Team. Adding to her list of accomplishments, Ms. Hall earned Varsity Letters as a cheerleader, the Best in County 4-H Project Award, and participated in Jefferson’s Big Sister/Little Sister Mentorship Program. All of which she was able to accomplish while earning the lofty title of 2012 Class Valedictorian.

Brad Turner, “plant manager” of the Communications Factory, continues to be impressed by the turnout for his firm’s scholarship offering. “Each year I’m thrilled by the caliber of intelligent and hardworking young adults that apply. And this year is no different. We’re proud to support future leaders, like Jennifer, with our scholarship.”

Jennifer joins previous winners of the Scholarship that include Meghan Caprez from Our Lady of the Elms High, Kristie McLeod from Firestone High, Katherine Polenick from Warren Harding High, Megan Fraley from Willoughby South High, Mason King from Hudson High, Ben Everly from Rootstown High, Daniel Hurd and Lauren Ilenin from Crestwood and Keely Davidson from Stow-Monroe Falls. The Factory’s scholarship will be awarded again next year to another deserving area senior. Interested students should keep an eye on the firm’s Web site (www.communicationsfactory.net) and local papers for the early 2013 announcement.

The Communications Factory celebrates its 10th year as a full-service ad agency that helps up-and-coming businesses retool their brands by melding the knowledge of a large shop with the entrepreneurial spirit of a small one.
