Robert F. Lauterborn Advertising Scholarship Winner
School of Communication Arts salutes Advertising Design student, Alex Centeno-Rodriquez for being the recipient of the prestigious Robert F. Lauterborn Scholarship. The scholarship is presented each spring at the American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Awards ceremony.
Alex is bilingual and calls Costa Rica his home country. Success is a characteristic that Alex is very familiar with. He earned his MBA from the University of Science and Technology in San Jose, Costa Rica and opened his design company, Merkados Interactive Partners in Raleigh, NC several years ago. Merkados designs and maintains bilingual websites and provides consulting services in Internet marketing.
It was not a surprise to the faculty and staff at the School when Alex won the scholarship. He has won two Best of Category awards at Gallery competition since beginning his studies at SCA. Alex picked up his first award at Fall 2008 Gallery Show for Stamp Collection Design and most recently at Winter 2009 Gallery Show for Illustration Design.
Stay posted…I’m sure we will hear more from Alex in the future.
