Investing in the Future with GMC Student Scholarships

Hilary Rosenthal, Chair, Student Scholarship Committee
Student Scholarship

The Greater Midwest Chapter of PCMA proudly announced our newest initiative in November - two GMC PCMA Student Scholarships, each worth $5,000. These individual scholarships will be awarded to student members of GMC PCMA who major in hospitality.

I would like to sincerely thank and recognize our Immediate Past President, Colleen Donohoe, who had the foresight and wisdom to initiate and create this valuable program. I also would like to recognize the other members of our scholarship task force who worked very diligently for the past year and a half to get this program off the ground: Brian Hile, Phil Ridley, and Yolanda Simmons.

We have also created a scholarship committee who will select and award the two student scholarships in January/February at our Annual Awards Luncheon.

If you know of any hospitality students who might be interested, please contact Bill Martin, Chair of the Student Membership Committee, or Hilary Rosenthal, Chair, Student Scholarship Committee. 

The GMC PCMA Chapter strongly believes that investing in our student members will not only enhance their involvement in our local chapter, but create future leaders in the years to come.
