Window Fashion Scholarship awarded

Retail Editor 1, November 23, 2011

Bethesda, Md. - The International Window Coverings Group has awarded the first Valerie Bursten Window Fashion Scholarship to Cheryl Henricks, owner of Draperies by George, a custom workroom and retail store in Chilicothe, Ohio.
The scholarship was established earlier this year in the memory of Valerie Bursten, a veteran executive in the window coverings industry who passed away earlier this year.
Henricks was selected by the International Window Coverings Exchange Group for her interest in seeking professional career growth through education and training. The $6,000 scholarship - which was co-sponsored by Window Fashion-Vision Magazine, Custom Home Furnishings Academy, Exciting Windows and Window Coverings University - will provide Henricks with the opportunity to take live and online design and sales courses and attend the International Window Coverings Expo in Chicago next April.
