Govig named top AAF Stickell intern

University of Tulsa communications senior Betsy Govig has been named Outstanding Stickell Summer Intern by the American Advertising Federation. Govig was one of 60 students nominated earlier this year as one of the most deserving individuals from student AAF chapters nationwide to receive a summer internship at a U.S. media organization, advertising agency or client and supplier company.

News-Govig-OutstandingInternGovig completed a 10-week internship at Slingshot, an award-winning ad agency in Dallas. She received a $4,000 stipend and $1,500 scholarship.

The Stickell Advisory Board selected Govig as the top intern based on her background, accomplishments to date, supervisor’s evaluation and her own evaluation of the internship experience. The recognition earns her a three-year term as the former intern representative on the Stickell Advisory Board.

The Vance and Betty Lee Stickell Student Internship Program was established in 1989 in honor of the late Vance L. Stickell, former executive vice president of marketing for the Los Angeles Times. During his 39-year career in advertising, Stickell established himself nationally as a highly respected advertising practitioner and statesman. The program is intended to raise awareness and understanding of advertising processes and business ethics among future advertising professionals.
