Mortimer Harvey is to continue its bursary and other support programmes for previously disadvantaged students at Vega, The Brand Communications School in Johannesburg.
Gordon Cook, National School Navigator at Vega, said he was delighted that the Mortimer Harvey Bursary for a deserving student undertaking his or her Honours Programme at Vega would again be allocated this year. “Mortimer Harvey was one of the first communications agencies to initiate a bursary a number of years ago and we look forward to growing this valuable partnership.”
Mortimer Harvey's Executive Creative Director, Gerald Harvey, said that the agency's commitment to improving industry standards now also included participation in the development of the Imagination Lab initiative at Vega as well as taking some of Vega's previously disadvantaged students onboard for an internship at Mortimer Harvey. “It has always been our belief that support of previously disadvantaged students is not only good for South Africa but a necessary investment in the future of both our company and the industry.”
