It is our sincere hope that our two scholarship recipients find success not only in their education and chosen careers, but also as community members that will one day shape the world.
We had many great applicants this year. We are proud to recognize the following students as winners of our 2016 grants:
Doug Akerstrom, who plans to combine his love of sports with his skills in accounting and marketing to pursue Sports Management in college. Doug is also one of the first in his family to attend. We have no doubt that this young man's energy will propel him to great heights.
Gianna Lorusso, a top-notch student who plans to study Business, with her eye already on a Master's degree. Gianna's letters of recommendation and enthusiastic essay painted the picture of a dedicated, ambitious young women, ready to conquer the world.
Congratulations to you both!
(Many apologies that I couldn't find Doug in the crowd to grab a photo.)
