Gem Young is sponsoring scholarships at both Kent State, in the insurance studies program, and Youngstown State, in the MBA program.

Last fall the first two recipients were announced and we recently received some feedback from the two students we wanted to share. Here are some excerpts from the letters we received:

Thank you for the generous Gem Young Future Leaders Scholarship. I was excited to learn that I had been selected to receive this honor, and I am deeply appreciative of your support in my academic venture….. by awarding me this scholarship you have significantly decreased my financial burden.

Amanda Nichols

I would like to express my most heartfelt gratitude for selecting me for this scholarship. As a full-time student any assistance I am able to receive to help cover the cost of tuition is greatly appreciated. My ability to advance in my career has been made possible by the generosity of organizations such as yours.

Brett Hammer

Congratulations to both Amanda and Brett. We look forward to continuing to support local higher education.
