This is the 13th year ASTA has awarded the Susan L. Abbott Memorial Scholarship in memory of past ASTA President Susan Abbott. ASTA received 16 applications for the Susan L. Abbott Memorial Scholarship. Scholarship applications are anonymous; all information identifying the applicant is removed by the ASTA staff prior to review by the committee. Juliana Bermingham, daughter of Stephen Birmingham with Poly Trade International, Morgan Meilander, daughter of Matt Meilander with B&G Foods, and Xarianna Nunez-Hiraldo, daughter of Brenda Hiraldo with B&G Foods were the extraordinary student recipients of the Susan L. Abbott Memorial Scholarship. We’d like to thank everyone who promoted the scholarship within their company and urge you to spread the word again next year. With the rising costs for college, these scholarships offer students the opportunity for additional financial support to continue their education. Please consider making a donation for 2018!
