SCHOLARSHIP STORIES

I am honored to receive this award. It will make a huge impact on my career and education.
I knew I wanted to be an event planner from a young age. I was so dedicated to events that I was able to skip my senior year of high school to go to Johnson and Wales a year early to get my degree in event management.
Thank you so much to Hilton Hotels for providing a small woman-owned company with the opportunity to have new doors opened and expand my world of planning and hospitality.
