    NRF

    Merchandise Marketing second year student Amanda Tobias has just been named a semi-finalist for the NRF Foundation's Ray Greenly Scholarship. Undergraduate and graduate students from more than 40 schools across the country applied for the award, and executives from companies such as Walgreens, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Macy’s, Tractor Supply, and Walmart served as judges to select the 25 semi-finalists.

    Amanda will receive a travel scholarship to attend the Shop.org Digital Summit and Student Program in Philadelphia from October 4, 2015 to October 7, 2015. Digital retail executives, including members of the Shop.org Board of Directors, will select the five finalists, with plans to award one $25,000 scholarship to the top recipient and four $10,000 scholarships to the remaining finalists.

    Good luck, Amanda!
