CANTON, Ohio (July 31, 2017) — Innis Maggiore President and CEO Dick Maggiore today announced that Kent State University at Stark senior Paul Farley was awarded the Innis Maggiore Endowed Scholarship for Communications.

A marketing major, Farley is a nontraditional student who returned to college after a five-year break. He is the marketing director at Retain Loyalty and also runs his own business, Optimum Designs, a web design company. His future plans include real estate investing and possibly opening a brokerage.

Farley lives in Perry Township with his fiancé and daughter, and also has a son on the way. 

“This scholarship has been a godsend to me,” Farley said. “The award came at just the right time as it will help me cross the finish line to earn my degree.”

Maggiore said Innis Maggiore is proud to invest in tomorrow’s workforce. “We believe our support will help the community grow and prosper. Paul’s dedication to his education is commendable, and we appreciate his passion for marketing — particularly his expressed interest in positioning strategy.”

Innis Maggiore originally endowed the scholarship in 2007. This year, $1,750 was distributed to the scholarship winner. Full-time Kent State Stark students who reside in Stark County, major in communications, marketing, public relations, journalism or advertising, and demonstrate need are eligible for the annual scholarship.
