WLC Grant, Ros Plummer Scholarship Recipients Named
On June 24-26 in New Orleans, Louisiana, the 2019 PPAI Women's Leadership Conference (WLC) will offer attendees a full schedule of content-rich education sessions designed to engage and empower women in the promotional products industry. The WLC Grant and the Ros Plummer Scholarship open the door for select applicants to attend the event.
PPAI has presented the WLC Grant, funded by people and companies in the industry for several years. The Ros Plummer Scholarship was first awarded last year. The program was created to honor the memory of Ros Plummer, a long-time WLC attendee who passed away suddenly in 2017.
This year’s grant recipient is Jennifer Lindsey Cooper, a Detroit, Michigan-based senior account manager with distributor Geiger. She says, “I am thrilled and honored to have been awarded the PPAI scholarship! I am looking forward to learning more about our organization and how I may better contribute to our industry going forward in my career. This award was such a bright spot in what has proved to be a challenging time in my family life. I am grateful to be energized this way and I am so excited to participate in all of the offerings at the event. I want to express my gratitude to PPAI as well as my vice president, Dawn Ruler, for helping me navigate to the process.”
Shannon Loredo, president of distributor Business Branders in Houston, Texas, is the recipient of the Ros Plummer Scholarship. She says, “My goal is to learn from the leaders in our industry and make long-lasting mentor/mentee relationships. One major key to success is to find the most successful person you know in that field and emulate them. What better place than WLC to surround myself with the best women in our industry? I’m excited to learn from the women of influence and success in our industry, and develop both professional and personal relationships.”
For more than 14 years, WLC has played a pivotal role in challenging professional women, who share a common vision to achieve greater success, by enhancing their personal and professional knowledge through relevant topics, conversations and networking opportunities.
