Jennifer Negley -- Home Textiles Today, June 25, 2010

Greensboro, N.C. -- WithIt, the women's leadership network serving the home and furnishings industries, has awarded Jena and Stephen B. Hall Scholarships to two students pursuing degrees in careers related to design and home and furnishings industries.

The 2010 recipients are: Sarah K. Callaham, an Appalachian State University student pursuing degrees in architectural technology/design and interior design; and Amarinh Kongmanivong, an interior design student attending Randolph Community College.

Both are being awarded $2,500 each, which is to be applied toward tuition expenses.

"WithIt is pleased to award this year's ambitious recipients, one of whom is just beginning her college experience, while the other is a career-change professional who is following her passion for design after a multi-year military career," said Cameron Cook, WithIt's Scholarship Foundation vice president and public relations manager for Four Hands.

Scholarships are presented annually by WithIt - www.WithIt.org - in July to college students enrolled full-time in fields of study that will lead to careers in the home and furnishing industries, including decorative accessory design, architectural design, forestry, furniture design, textiles design, graphic design, interior architecture, sustainable design or other majors related to the home and furnishings industries.
