Many thanks to all who turned out for the Nebraska Furniture Mart luncheon at Maggiano’s NorthPark and the very interesting presentation by Dallas-Fort Worth store manager, Ed Lipsett. The Spring opening date is top secret and we can’t wait to experience a visit to the new location on 121, just west of the Tollway, to see its magnitude and all it has to offer. Thank you to Nebraska Furniture Mart and Fox Sports for providing the door prizes and to Greg Heitzman and Jan Burress for coordinating the details of the luncheon!

AWM Application for $5,000 Scholarship
In 1960, the Alliance for Women in Media became the first professional broadcasting organization to establish an educational foundation. Our mission is to utilize the media to create positive change. The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation supports educational programs, charitable activities, public service campaigns and scholarships to benefit the public, the media and allied fields.
The Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, Inc. will award a scholarship in the amount of $5,000 in the names of Irene Runnels, a distinguished and respected Dallas broadcaster and Paula McStay, a former Fort Worth advertising executive. This scholarship, available in early 2015, will be administered through the University Financial Aid Office and must be applied toward undergraduate or graduate tuition only.
The Irene Runnels-Paula McStay scholarship will be awarded to a student attending a Texas public or private university that offers radio, television, film, public relations, advertising/communications or broadcasting as the major emphasis of study.
Applicants will be considered on the basis of educational and career goals in their major field of study, activities and honors, service to community and references. The scholarship will be acknowledged at the Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation Awards of Excellence Gala on April 16, 2015.
Application deadline is Friday March 6th.
