Outstanding Marketing Scholar Award

Carrie Rock

 "I chose to pursue marketing because of the wide range of options it provides. You can go almost anywhere with marketing. I recently accepted a job in innovation (something I didn't see myself doing when I came into college) and I don't think I would have gained the critical thinking skills I needed without having marketing as one of my majors."

"Marketing is a field that uniquely combines business with creativity to form authentic relationships and drive success. This really appealed to me as someone who is creative, competitive, and enjoys analyzing this everchanging field. My time at Virginia Tech has only furthered this excitement for marketing as a result of my professors who have inspired me in my classes; my role in the organization, PRISM, which has allowed me to contribute to impactful marketing campaigns for our clients; and my position working in marketing at VT Rec Sports where I have grown my interests in the marketing field and have put my creativity into action. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have been given during my time at Virginia Tech and look forward to starting my career in the innovative field of marketing."
