WithIt Announces Scholarship Winners

GREENSBORO, N.C.--WithIt has announced the recipients of the 2012 Jena & Stephen Hall Scholarship. Full-time students Liz Moore of Kendall College of Art & Design and Kimberly Small of Winthrop University each earned $2,500 to cover tuition expense.

In addition WithIt hosted 20 student scholars at its recent professional conference sponsored by Brown Jordan, Sunbrella, furniture designer Richard Frinier and WithIt 2010 President's Award recipient Catherine Frinier. Students pursuing degrees in home furnishings-related careers, including Moore and Small, were able to learn from keynote speakers, engage in timely roundtable discussions and network with fellow attendees.
