Foundation Announces Four Outstanding Rising Star Scholars
The Angerosa Research Foundation has selected four emerging communications professionals as the recipients of its 2013 Rising Star Scholarships.
For their contributions to the association publishing field, the Foundation recognizes Philip George, associate manager, marketing and communications, Healthcare Businesswomen's Association; Sandy Laycox, writer/editor, National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems; Brendan McEntee, publications manager and managing editor, American Society of Addiction Medicine; Debra Woodfork, production and design manager, Association of Corporate Counsel. Each $1,000 scholarship will provide tuition assistance as these individuals continue their professional development at the 2013 Association Media & Publishing Annual Meeting, Poynter Media Institute sessions, and the 2013 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition.
The Angerosa Research Foundation is the nonprofit organization established by Stratton Publishing & Marketing Inc. in 2003 to conduct industry benchmark research to benefit the association publishing and marketing communities, in honor of the late Angela Angerosa, former vice president of research for Stratton. Launched in 2008, the Rising Star Scholarship and Publishing Trendsetter recognition programs honor and support association media professionals.
“These four ambitious individuals demonstrated an impressive level of drive and leadership to advance the missions of their organizations,” says Debra J. Stratton, president of Stratton Publishing & Marketing and founder of the Angerosa Research Foundation. “We heard from many outstanding candidates this year, and we are pleased to help further their development through our program. I’m sure we will see big things from these talented young professionals in the future.”
Recipients will be formally honored at an event this spring in the Washington D.C. area.
