Covey wins PSU business scholarship

Kathy Covey of Lake Oswego is the recipient of the fall 2013 Portland State University Search Engine Marketing Workshop Scholarship.

Covey works with the Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood and is also a student of the Digital Marketing Strategies certification at PSU’s Professional Development Center. The scholarship is for $650.

“What good is a beautiful website, robust with information, if the people who need to find the website can’t?” Covey said. “It can be very confusing to teach yourself SEM, that’s why I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn about it through PSU’s program.

“Thanks to SEMpdx’s scholarship I will be able to optimize the Cat Adoption Team website with confidence to help find homes for felines in our community.”

SEMpdx President Mike Rosenberg said, “A major component of our mission is to educate Portland in the field of digital marketing. Another is to give back to our community and this scholarship helps accomplish both of those goals.”
