Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, May 25, 2012
Six students bound for careers in the home furnishings industry have been selected to receive Celia Moh Scholarhips for the 2012-13 academic year.
They are: Megan Barrett, Jessica Rose and Danielle Souder, all attending North Carolina State University; William Lyon, attending High Point University; Evan Fay, attending Kendall College of Art and Design, and Taylor Webb, a student at Mississippi State University.
A Celia Moh Scholarhip covers full-time tuition and fees, room, board and books for its recipients. The scholarship also hosts an annual networking and resource-building trip to the High Point Market, provides informal internship and career guidance for its scholars, and offers an active alumni network for former scholars now working in the home furnishings industry.
The scholarship fund was established in 2001 by furniture industry entrepreneur Laurence Moh, founder of Universal Furniture and FineFurnitureDesign, in honor of his wife, Celia. The $3 million endowment has awarded 73 full scholarships since its founding.
