Congratulations to the following scholarship recipients: Maricela Arosemena, Hope Barnecott, Natalia Bryzhnik, Noelle Cipollini, Melissa Diers, Jamie Gregor, Lauren Jenkins,Esther Lamarche, Hang Phan, Andreina Restrepo, James Sang, Kira Schmidt, Bethany Walti and Christin Williams.
Wells Fargo selected to support the Professional Selling Program because they are committed to assisting programs that:
- Promote academic achievement for low to moderate income students
- Advance teaching through professional development and support
- Facilitate merit-based access to higher education for underrepresented groups
- The Professional Selling Program is a highly selective program that is limited to 35 students each year. It is one of only approximately 50 specialized sales undergraduate programs in the nation.
