Business Student Receives Scholarship from International Organization

February 10, 2014

ATHENS, Ala. - Athens State University College of Business student Julie Dobbins is the recipient of the North Alabama International Trade Association (NAITA) Scholarship for the current academic year. She was recognized at the NAITA Annual Meeting on February 7 at a luncheon held at the Westin Hotel in Huntsville.

Dobbins is seeking her Business Management major and International Business minor. Julie hails from Gadsden Alabama and was awarded this honor based upon her exceptional academic record while at Athens State University. She was notified of the award by the NAITA Executive Director Anne Burkett in January.

“It is always a good thing when our students are recognized for the exemplary work they are doing,” states Dr. Tom Pieplow, Athens State’s Department Chair of Management, Logistics & Supply Chain Management and a member of the NAITA Senior Advisory Board. “Julie works very hard at her studies and will undoubtedly be successful in any area of International Business. She is a budding superstar and I look forward to her moving into a professional career and demonstrating her abilities.”

The NAITA Scholarship is administered through the Athens State University Foundation and has strict guidelines that must be met for its award. It pays out $1,000 per year (two semesters) for those who receive it and is payable towards tuition and books.
