Sheldon, who graduated from MSU with a bachelor’s degree in advertising from the College of Communication Arts and Sciences, was the featured speaker at MSU’s Green & White Evening in New York City, which took place on March 12, 2015 at Deutsch Inc.’s spacious Manhattan office.

Prabu David, Ph.D., who was named the new dean of the College of Communication Arts and Sciences in January, and John C. Besley, Ph.D., an associate professor and Ellis N. Brand Chair in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations, also spoke at the event.
