Four management majors at the Frank G. Zarb School of Business have won prestigious scholarships from the Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust totaling $60,000.
The Harold S. Geneen Scholarship for Outstanding Achievement in Management was awarded based on academic excellence, financial need and student essays on the importance of ethical and responsible corporate management.
“This generous support from the Geneen Charitable Trust lessens financial pressures on our students, enabling them to focus on their studies and pursue experiential learning opportunities, including internships and community service, thus preparing them to become better corporate leaders,” said Zarb School Dean Dr. Herman Berliner, PhD.
The scholarship recipients are:
- Dana Craig, a senior management and legal studies in business major who is an Honors College student, a Student Government senator and member of 180 Degrees Consulting, a student volunteer group that helps local non-profits improve their business processes. She also helped launch, and is president of, the university’s DECA chapter.
- Matthew R. DeCastro, a senior management and accounting major who is also pursuing his graduate accounting degree in the five-year dual-degree program. He is a member of Alpha Beta Psi, the accounting honor society, and has volunteered as chairman of his church’s food pantry.
- Joshua Metzler, a senior management and finance major who is president of the Pride Network and a resident assistant in the first-year Zarb School living and learning community.
- Kayla J. Zerfoss, a senior management and legal studies in business major who has served as a 2016 presidential debate volunteer, an Honors College peer teacher and a transfer mentor in the university’s Peer Alliance Program.
