The firm was one of two agencies up for a large government contract to do the ad work for the Providence?s government day campaign. April being preoccupied with a sick child left much of the work for Jordan to do. Having pulled the entire presentation together Jordan went over everything the day before the final client meeting with April. Since April had better speaking skills, they decided that April would present the majority of the work and Jordan would supplement information in a few areas. The presentation was a huge hit. The contract was awarded to the agency garnering April many accolades. So grateful were the owners of the business, they approached April with a bonus check in the amount of $10,000.
