Congratulations to Lindsey Cardell our 2021 Scholarship Recipient
Lindsey received the 2021 Scholarship at the WAVE Awards on November 18th at Four Winds Farm.
Here is a little about Linsdsey and why we think she is so amazing!
Lindsey is a UW Madison Student Majoring in Journalism and Communication Arts with a certificate in Graphic Design.
She has stayed on the Dean’s list consistently throughout her schooling and will graduate in May of 2022.
Lindsey has always had a zest for storytelling. The passion started young for Lindsey. She remembers writing, directing, and staring in her first production at seven years old. Even though it was only for an admiring audience of three with her trusty blanket at her side, she knew her adventures had just begun. Over time, she realized she could have a career through her passion and plans on utilizing her creative skills as an Art Director in Advertising after graduation.
Lindsey has been an active member of UW Madison’s Intermission Theatre since 2018 and currently serves as an Executive Board Trustee. She is a UW Ad Club member and has worked on many production and campaign projects including their 2019 and 2020 Best Fall Productions and Campaigns.
She is a Graphic Design Assistant working on social media, newsletters, graphic ads for several learning communities and created recycling materials for Starbucks. She also has an Internship with The Adult Literacy Center. To date, she has redesigned their website and logo, created two social media campaigns that brought in over $25,000, and writes stories for appeals and grant applications.
Somehow with this busy schedule, Lindsey finds time to donate to A Moment of Magic, a non-profit that provides medically vulnerable children with creative programming, outlets, and support to foster imagination, friendship, and hope through college-student volunteers. Lindsey tracks their membership, maintains their website, writes, and distributes their monthly newsletter and more. She currently serves at the organizations Vice President.
It’s incredible that Lindsey has done all this amazing work in the industry while pursuing her education. We can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!
