6/13/16 ASHLAND, Ohio – Ten Emerson Scholars from Ashland University’s Dauch College of Business and Economics received recognition at an Emerson Scholar Awards luncheon held on the Ashland University campus.
A $175,000 grant from the Emerson Foundation funded the creation of the Emerson Scholars Program in 2007 and “Emerson Scholars” are selected annually.
This year’s group of 10 students who will be seniors in the fall are Mikala Miller, an accounting major from Shelby, Ohio; Derek Stallard, a finance and business management major from Seville, Ohio; Kasey Petrecca, a supply chain management major from Willowick, Ohio; Zachary Srock, a supply chain management and marketing major from Doylestown, Ohio; Brett Stecker, an accounting and finance major from Mansfield, Ohio; Jeremiah Jansen, a supply chain management and business management major from North Olmsted, Ohio; Katelyn Bogner, an entrepreneurship and hospitality management major from Tiffin, Ohio; Tiarra Kick, a marketing major from Lexington, Ohio; Alexander McHugh, a entrepreneurship, business management and supply chain management major from Newark, Ohio; and Paige Rengert, a supply chain management and business management major from Mansfield, Ohio.
“We feel very privileged to have the Emerson Scholars Program in the Dauch College of Business and Economic,” said Dr. Jeff Russell, who was dean of the Dauch College last year. “The program benefits our seniors in many different ways. In addition to providing the extra financial assistance for their senior year, it also helps the students network with some of the senior managers from the company and learn about possible career opportunities with the company.”
Paul McKnight, retired senior vice president for organizational planning at the Emerson Foundation, said, “Successful companies must have the right talent in the right place at the right time if they expect to win in the global marketplace. Because advancing people is a top priority at Emerson, we created the Emerson Scholars Program in the Dauch College of Business and Economics at Ashland University.”
