Hospitality Students Earn Scholarships; Help Manage Tournament
October 27, 2014
Four Isenberg Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) students were among the six recipients of $13,000 in scholarships at the New England Club Managers Association's (NECMA) annual awards ceremony on October 20th at the Golf Club at Turner Hill in Ipswich. Awarded through the association's David Meador Foundation, the scholarships went to Isenberg students Ashley Hellstrom, Alexander Darling, Kristina Reny, and Victoria Peterson, all who have chosen club management as a career path. Over the past four years, Isenberg HTM students have received more than $40,000 in scholarships from the David Meador fund.
Isenberg HTM students also played key roles on October 7th at the David Meador Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament at the Kittansett Club in Marion. HTM club management students Lyman Phillips, Carson Crook, Marcus Otis, and Jennifer Hrebenak contributed notably to the organization and execution of the event, which raised $49,000 for the scholarship fund.
The award recipients and tournament organizers are all pursuing the HTM program's Club Management concentration, which combines coursework with immersion in the workplace-typically at country clubs and other private membership venues in the industry.
Isenberg's NECMA student chapter is one of the association's largest and most active. NECMA's 240+ members manage 150+ clubs in New England. The organization works closely with Isenberg to help students gain internships, networking opportunities, entry-level management employees after graduation, and other hands-on learning experiences.
