Ashland honors Dauch College's Emerson Scholars

The Emerson Scholars Program was created in 2007 with a $175,000 grant from the Emerson Foundation.

Ashland University recently hosted its Emerson Scholar Awards for 2016, where the school honored 10 Emerson Scholars who will be seniors next fall in the Dauch College of Business and Economics.

“We feel very privileged to have the Emerson Scholars Program in the Dauch College of Business and Economics,” Jeff Russell, dean of the Dauch College, said. “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.”

The Emerson Scholars Program was created in 2007 with a $175,000 grant from the Emerson Foundation. This year’s Emerson Scholars include Katelyn Bogner, Jeremiah Jansen, Tiarra Kick, Alexander McHugh, Mikala Miller, Derek Stallard, Kasey Petrecca, Paige Rengert, Zachary Srock and Brett Stecker.

“Successful companies must have the right talent in the right place at the right time if they expect to win in the global marketplace,” former Emerson Foundation Senior Vice President for Organizational Planning Paul McKnight, said. “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.”
