In 2003, Helene Solomon and Ashley McCown came together to form Solomon McCown & Company (SM&), a Boston-based public relations firm committed to the highest standards; that raised the bar on performance, commitment and results. Last week, SM& celebrated its 15th anniversary and our evolution into being a fully integrated strategic communications firm with in-house digital, creative content and advertising capabilities, government relations and a second office in New York City. The party took place at Legal Harborside overlooking the Boston Harbor. More than 200 guests attended.
Communications as a profession has enabled all of us at SM& to do work that matters and we want to see more students understand the range of career opportunities that are open to them in the communications field starting in high school. So, to commemorate our 15th year, in partnership with Boston Public Schools and the City of Boston’s Private Industry Council, Solomon McCown has established a scholarship fund to provide a full time, paid summer internship for a BPS student. We look forward to welcoming our first student next summer.
