Junior Marketing Association (JMA) Week 2014
Last November 26 – 28, the Scholastican Marketers celebrated the most anticipated event of the year, the Marketing Week. Celebrating this week has been a tradition to expose the students to different speakers that encourages learning for them and increases camaraderie.
Students actively supported all the events from the ribbon cutting, headed by JMA’s President Judea Leonor and Finance officer Sharmaine Bito, with Student Council Org Officer Janice De Guzman. Simultaneously, there was an exhibit held at the Social Hall sponsored by Fair and Square. The exhibit showcased the different activities that JMA had in the previous months. Also, it shared some fun facts about digital marketing which is the theme of the organization week.
In line with this, the organization conducted a fund raising activity for the benefit of the students in Approscom DayCare center where they conducted an outreach activity last December 13, 2014. They used the proceeds to buy slippers for the children in the daycare center. In the afternoon session, the Marketers attended a talk with PMA’s VP for chapters, Mr. VJ Eugenio and Mr. Denver Daradar. The honorable guests speaker imparted with the students their knowledge in Digital Marketing being practitioners of the field.
Marketers came rushing to the field and to different parts of St. Scholastica’s College, Manila for the JMAzing Olympics on the second day. This game is to build a bond among fellow marketers in the organization. Then, after having fun and exciting activities, they finally had time to relax and feel comfortable while watching the movie “Thank you for smoking” in which they learned about marketing in the industry of tobacco.
On the third day, these girls enjoyed the last day of their week by playing a lot of fun – filled games. Though it ended soon, these Marketers surely learned a lot and they will never forget it as they enter the corporate world.
