Tommie Speights Memorial Scholarship Gala
Tommie Speights was WTVY of Marianna’s first African American reporter and a valued member of the Northwest Florida community. After his recent passing, his family and friends wanted to put on a gala in his honor that would award a scholarship in his name. I became involved with this project when Lynn at Carpe Diem Community Solutions, a client and friend of mine who I normally work together with for Florida Department of Transportation development maps, came to me in need of a full event branding consisting of posters, formal invitation packages, letterheads, table tents, admission tickets, stationary, and digital graphics. Though I did not know Tommie personally, he was an employee of FDOT and a friend of Lynn, and I was honored to be a part of this project.
