Students heard from top leaders in the marketing profession, networked, attended workshops, and participated in a marketing strategy competition. Pictured at the banquet on the final evening of the event are:  (front) Lauren Rogers, Kara Weller, Shea Gabrielleschi (current Ole Miss AMA President), and Alex Rannochio; and (back) Taylor Morton, Scott Fiene (faculty advisor) and Catherine Goshorn (next year’s AMA President).
