Shelby Cunningham and Tricia Dyer have been awarded the Edith Cameron Scholarship and the Ann Bisgyer Wolz Scholarship respectively.
Shelby is the Interactive Media Coordinator at Hudson Fasteners in Youngstown, Ohio, and will attend the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo in Las Vegas in October.
Tricia works in sales for Stelfast in the Houston offices. She will attend the Fastener Training Institute for a Certified Fastener Specialist certificate.
WIFI's Scholarship Committee Chair, Beth Van Zandt, was thrilled with this year's caliber of candidates.
"It was a great pool of candidates for each scholarship, and I hope that we will have many more applications next year from women who want to give their careers a boost by attending FTI or the Vegas Expo," says Beth.
The 5th Annual WIFI Speaker Series & Networking Event was a huge success at this year's National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo.
Communications consultant Alison Cohen delivered an educational and entertaining talk to a packed room of women and men who learned what it takes to promote your company and yourself.
The WIFI raffle raised over $400 for scholarships, and our scholarship winners Shelby Cunningham and Patricia Dyer were on hand to enjoy it all.
There was a lot of traffic at the WIFI booth during the Expo where member applications were flying off the table!
Thanks to everyone for joining WIFI, attending the event and spending time at the booth. We are already planning another great event for next year!
