scene from  African-American Student Union conference on  April 7 and  Boston – you were invited!

Seated from left to right facing you:  Janice Tennant, IMP Manager, Kimberly Clark Corporation (Kotex, Huggies, Kleenex) etc.;  Kahil Byrd, President of   StudentFirst.org and the 2005 key Deval Patrick for Governor PR Strategist;  Fay Ferguson, Co-CEO Burrell Communications and CD of the McDonald’s “McFishey” campaign and if you’ve seen Rapheal Saddick and Idris Elba in Toyota tv ad spots, you’ve seen her work and Carol Cunningham,  Vice President – Consumer Insights,  BET Networks.
