The AAM Group has named the recipients of the 2023 AAM Scholarship, the company announced.
The educational aid program was established to support full-time employees and the families of AAM member warehouses in the pursuit of educational goals at a two-year community college or technical school or a four-year college at the undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate level, the company said. Each $1,000 scholarship is awarded for one year to a high school graduate in good scholastic standing.
A committee of independent, third-party evaluators selected the following recipients:
- Alyssa Gonnerman (Midwest Wheel Companies): Graduated high school with a 3.924 GPA and plans to pursue a degree in biomedical sciences.
- Sadie Hudson (AllPro Distributing): Graduated with a 3.7 GPA and intends to pursue a career in elementary education.
- Sophie Lamont (North Central Distributing): Graduated high school with a 3.85 GPA and intends to study business in college.
- Paige Rice (Tri-State Enterprises): Graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA and plans to pursue a Bachelor of Science in nursing.
Each year’s AAM Scholarship application period opens April 15 and closes May 31. Applicants must be at least 16 years old on the day the application for the current year is due and have graduated high school or its equivalent with a minimum 3.0 GPA before July 1 of the year in which they will use the scholarship. Applicants must be a full-time employee of an AAM member or a child, grandchild, sister or brother of such an employee. Up to five $1,000 scholarships are be awarded each year.
