This year, AMA Houston is excited to extend the Penny Todd Scholarship to two recipients, University of Houston student Trevor Woeste and Sam Houston State University student Elimar Gonzalez.
As a sophomore at the University of Houston, double majoring in marketing and management information systems (MIS), Trevor is highly involved with the AMA University of Houston collegiate chapter. He competed at the AMA International Collegiate Conference in Chicago this past year, becoming 1 of 48 finalists out of 400 in their Pitch Perfect competition.
Elimar, born in Venezuela and raised in Houston since 2008, is a senior at Sam Houston State University. She will be the first in her family to graduate with a degree from an American university. After starting school as a graphic design major, Elimar made the brave leap as a junior to mass communications with a focus on advertising. She intends to pursue her master’s degree after some time working in corporate marketing.
Join us in congratulating these two outstanding marketing students and future marketing rockstars!
