Owens Student Receives American Dietetic Association Scholarship

Linda Stacy An Owens Community College student has been chosen by the American Dietetic Association to receive a 2004 ECOLAB Scholarship for the 2004-05 academic year. The College’s award recipient is Ashley Brough of Genoa.

The $2,000 ECOLAB Scholarship is one of many scholarships offered through the American Dietetic Association Foundation. As the largest provider of monetary awards within the field of dietetics, the Foundation assists students in their efforts to promote nutrition health and well-being. In collaboration with ECOLAB, a worldwide leader in commercial cleaning and sanitizing solutions, the American Dietetic Association Foundation is awarding a total of 12 ECOLAB Scholarships for the 2004-05 academic year.

“Owens Community College is extremely proud of Ashley and her commitment to the field of dietetic technologies,” said Tekla Madaras, Owens Chair of Dietetics/HRI Technologies. “We appreciate both the American Dietetic Association Foundation and ECOLAB for continuing to support students pursuing their career aspirations within dietetics.”

Scholarship criterion is based upon financial need, academic standing and the applicant’s career aspirations within the field of dietetics. Individuals also must be enrolled in a dietetic technician, baccalaureate, graduate, or internship program and hold membership in the American Dietetic Association.

Brough is pursuing her associate degree in dietetic technologies and carries a 3.72 grade point average at the College.
