Theresa Clarke Winning O'Hara Leadership Award - 2014

Dr. Theresa Clarke, Professor of Marketing, was named the 2014 Recipient of the Direct Marketing Association of Washington Educational Foundation’s (DMAW-EF) O’Hara Leadership Award in Education. 

 The O'Hara Leadership Award was created in 2008 in honor of Mr. Michael O’Hara, a pioneer within the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW) and the DMAW-EF.  Clarke’s nomination was vetted and voted on by the Educational Foundation’s Awards Committee, which considers courses taught that include direct/interactive marketing, the number of years teaching marketing, participation in marketing competitions, and why the professor believes it is important to educate college students in the field of direct/interactive marketing.

 “It is truly an honor to be recognized by such a strong and reputable organization in our profession, the Direct Marketing Association of Washington Educational Foundation.  I am grateful to be the recipient of the 2014 O’Hara Leadership Award, named on behalf of Mr. Michael O’Hara as I share his commitment to educating our marketing leaders of tomorrow,” said Clarke. “On behalf of all the marketing professors, who work so very hard, and often very quietly, behind the scenes trying to make a difference in the lives of their students, I thank the DMAW-EF for supporting and recognizing our work. Programs such as the ‘Mentor for a Day’ and the ‘Professor’s Institute’ make such a difference in helping us to educate and inspire students to work in the direct/ interactive marketing field.”

Accompanied by her Department Head Dr. Andy Wood, Clarke was presented with the award at the 2014's Best of Direct Gala on December 2nd at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
