CANTON, Ohio (Dec. 20, 2011) -- Innis Maggiore President and CEO Dick Maggiore today announced that in keeping with the spirit of the season of giving, the nation's leading advertising agency in the practice of positioning has contributed an additional $10,000 to the scholarship fund it has endowed at Kent State University Stark Campus.

"It is a fact that education has great potential to be uplifting not only to individual students but to our community at large. Our vision for the scholarship is to help elevate the quality of life here in Stark County, and for Stark County someday soon to have more baccalaureate degrees than any other Ohio county.

"The scholarship endowment continues to earn and grow, so its contribution to elevating our community's education grows as well. It is just one small way we as responsible citizens can help raise the tide of education here," Maggiore said.
