Ebony Thomas looks forward to participating in the 2017 Student Sales and Marketing Conference

Ebony Thomas, a Gulfport, Mississippi native and business administration major at Alcorn State University, is one of many of the University’s students that earn recognition for their outstanding academic efforts.

Ebony is among 100 of the nation’s top business students selected to participate in the National Sales Network annual Student Sales and Marketing Conference Saturday, Sept. 16 through Monday, Sept. 18 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The National Sales Network Student Sales and Marketing Conference is a powerful sales and marketing development program available to diverse students interested in marketing and/or sales.

With over 500 students applying for the conference, being one of the top students selected is something that Ebony takes pride in.

“It is an honor to have been chosen to attend the annual student sales and marketing conference,” said Ebony, a senior. “Being selected showed me that my hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.”

The conference will provide Ebony with the opportunity to connect with other scholar business students while possibly solidifying a future with one of the sponsoring companies.

“I am most looking forward to connecting with other likeminded students with career goals and ambition that are similar to mine. I am also looking forward to meeting the many companies that sponsor the program to establish lasting relationships with different sales and marketing executives. This experience will be one of the greatest benefits to my future career in sales because it is an opportunity to build life-long connections as well as learn from some of the top companies in the world.”

Ebony salutes Alcorn’s School of Business for enhancing her skills in sales.

“Alcorn’s School of Business program has prepared me for this opportunity by providing me with the proper resources to thrive in sales. Having professors that encourage my success makes me want to go out and look for opportunities that will help me go further in my field.”
