He enjoyed working with professionals who shared his passion for the business. It was never about the money. His quote from a newspaper article sums it up, “When you do something you think is good – it’s all your own. TV production is not necessarily a financially rewarding occupation, but it’s really a kick. It’s a job like any job and you have to like it for there to by any type of fulfillment. I wouldn’t do anything else.” Ron passed away December 27, 2002. Past Silver Medal Award Winners 2002 2000 1998 1997 1996 Eric Johnson Beth Miller Nancy J. Wright Roger Diehm R.

This ambitious project is planned to assist in MLK Montessori’s efforts to raise $5,000,000 to build a new campus. The Dream Lives On MLK Montessori School benefits underprivledged pre-school aged children in the Fort Wayne area. The school is currently located at 3 different locations throughout Fort Wayne and is run on a shoestring budget and a loyal volunteer base as state and federal funding continues to decrease. Even with incredible obstacles, the school has continued to grow and so has the demand for more students to attend. Several years ago, ground was purchased with the intent on building a facility to bring all of the students together under one roof. On January 20th, 2003 a groundbreaking ceremony was held at the schools’ new location on Tillman Road, across from Fairview Golf Course. Ayaz Malik and his team at Marketing Impact have embarked on a two-tier commitment to MLK with the creation of a public awareness campaign and a capital fundraising campaign. The public awareness campaign will include print ads, TV and radio public service commercials, outdoor boards and website. The capital campaign will include a portfolio and the materials to present to potential financial contributors. AdFed and MLK Montessori give heartfelt thanks to Ayaz and Marketing Impact for graciously donating their time and talent.
