First Annual Meyer Design Award for Interior Design
Philadelphia-PA. Meyer Design is pleased to announce the First Annual Meyer Design Award for Interior Design at Philadelphia University.
On Saturday, May 4th, the Meyer Design Award for Interior Design was given to Philadelphia University senior Casey Thompson at Philadelphia University’s 37th Annual University Academic Award Ceremony. As part of Philadelphia University’s scholarship and annual award program, Meyer Design sponsored this new award to recognize and celebrate an outstanding interior design student.
Casey, who graduated last week with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, held the 3rd highest GPA in the senior class of Philadelphia University’s Interior Design students. While a student, Casey was a board member of the University’s chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and recently was the recipient of the 2012 NEWH scholarship which funded a trip to San Francisco to attend a leadership conference on hospitality design, which Casey plans to focus on in her career.
Casey Thompson; “I was truly honored to receive the Meyer Design Award and even more so knowing that I was the first recipient. It is great to see a company so involved in student work and it provided me with a great networking opportunity.”
With over twelve current staff members and interns from Philadelphia University, Meyer Design has had a long-standing relationship with the University and has sought out different ways to connect to students and the Philadelphia University community. Meyer Design Project Manager Phil Burkett, an adjunct Professor in the Interior Design program, says that the Meyer Design Award for Interior Design “celebrates the hard work of a talented design student at an exceptional Interior Design program. PhilaU provides excellent training in interior design and we constantly recruit students from there to be part of the Meyer team.”
