Javelina Marketing Association
Students use creativity for fundraising  
Javelina Marketing Association (JMA) is the student organization for any undergraduate or graduate TAMUK student who wants to learn more about Marketing.  
The organization is focused on professional development, community service and fundraising as well hosting marketing speakers, etiquette workshops and more.  
The organization held a very successful and popular fundraiser earlier this semester for Valentine's Day. Recognizing that many folks in the CBA didn't have the time to go out and shop for presents for their special someone, they decided to bring the presents to them. Raising over $100, JMA members sold a number of different gift packages that included stuffed animals and small boxes of candy already wrapped in gift bags to students, faculty, and staff alike.  Proceeds from the sale will be used toward professional development opportunities.
