Clark Atlanta University today announced its partnership with iconic brand Now and Later® candy to launch its #RecognizeTheChew Class-in-Session Series. The educational initiative aligns with the brand’s vision to celebrate working hard and making a difference. The program will recognize the hustle of ambitious entrepreneurs, go-getters, and leaders from the Mass Media Arts Department.

“Now and Later is a brand built on the values of hard work, resilience, transformation and authenticity. HBCU faculty, students and alumni embody these values daily,” says Alnese Thomas, Brand Manager, Laffy Taffy & Now and Later.
“It’s a pleasure to support the incredible impact these institutions play in fostering some of the nation’s most influential leaders.”
“We appreciate Now and Later for selecting Clark Atlanta University’s Mass Media Arts Department (MMA) as one of its first donation recipients,” said Gary Yates, Former Interim Chair and Associate Professor. “Gifts like this truly help our MMA students to complete their journey of becoming the communications industry’s next top leaders,”
"This program is an example of the many reasons I'm excited to helm the Mass Media Arts Department," said April Lundy, Interim Chair and Associate Professor. "We are excited to partner with Now and Later and prepare our students to thrive with such an iconic brand."
“I look forward to partnering with Now and Later on this program and sharing my personal and professional experience with the #RecognizeTheChew Class in Session students,” Keshia Knight Pulliam says. “This next generation of HBCU leaders are resilient, and I am honored to provide any helpful nuggets to help fuel their entrepreneurial passions.”
