Mark Secrist has dedicated himself to helping students prepare for careers in advertising over the past 30 years, maintaining a rich network JAMM alumni in the region and nation.

One student said he ‘opened my eyes’ to the opportunities in advertising; another said he was a ‘great teacher.’ He was praised for his patience, caring and helpful teaching, and students felt comfortable in classroom discussion.

Celebrate Mark's retirement with him at the Tribute to Mark Secrist and the Advertising Competition Team April 27-28, 2017.
