Our Marketing class has joined with RIC's AMA (American Marketing Associate) to enhance content. Arts Talk also had a professional development to bring other content areas together with the Arts. A $1,000.00 grant is given to the participant. The grant is used to help the AMA compete in New Orleans against over 100 universities /colleges. Five groups of students in Marketing class are coming up with a theme centered around the topic "ambition". A graphic designer will help them to create backdrops and props for the AMA to use. We are connecting the community, school, and secondary education.
