I am happy to announce that I have been selected as a recipient of the International Association for Business Communication (ABC) Graduate Student Travel Scholarship. I was informed that the ABC selection committee received a record number of applications this year, so the competition was quite intense.
The scholarship was presented at the ABC Presidential Awards Luncheon on Friday, October 25th, 2013. Although I could not be there to receive the reward in person due to conference commitments, I am thankful to the awards committee for this honor. This year the ABC 2013 convention was in New Orleans, Louisiana, where I presented my research about social media for small businesses.
