It is our pleasure to share with you that the Class of 2017 Becca Blanco Memorial Scholarship was awarded for the first time this past weekend during Johnson's Women in Business Symposium in Ithaca. Natalie Kirchhoff, our inaugural awardee, is an outstanding student. She is already emerging as a leader at Johnson and we cannot wait to see all the wonderful things that she will do during her time at Cornell and beyond.
None of this would have been possible without your generous support. We are immensely grateful for all of you coming together and for showcasing what our community is all about.
We had a beautiful time in Ithaca celebrating Becca's life and legacy. And we did it in style (white limo and wine slushes included). We miss Becca greatly every day but we are encouraged and emboldened by everything that this team was able to accomplish and we are aiming for bigger goals.
Olga, Steve and Kartin
