In honor of the late Alan Greenberg's business legacy, CCA Global Partners gives out two $5000 scholarships each year to promising young entrepreneurs seeking a post-secondary education. This year's winners were Stella Hehnly and Gigi Riesenberg.
Part of our mission at CCA Global Partners is to continue the education of promising entrepreneurs and help those seeking a post-secondary education attain their dreams. The Alan Greenberg Memorial Scholarship fund honors the late co-CEO of CCA Global Partners Alan Greenberg by granting $5,000 scholarships to students seeking college education. Two scholarships are given out each year to students that show business and leadership skills in their chosen field.
Greenberg himself was a long time advocate for education and spent much of his life counseling small business owners and their employees. With the Alan Greenberg Memorial Scholarship Fund, CCA Global Partners aims to honor his legacy and help defray the cost of a college education for young leaders.
This year’s recipients of the scholarship are Stella Hehnly and Gigi Riesenberg. Stella is currently a freshman at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV where she studies at the College of Business and Economics. Planning to major in Hospitality and Tourism Management with a minor in marketing, Stella dreams of opening up her own bakery one day.
In just her first year of college alone, Stella has become a part of the Women in Business Club and has received the West Virginia Promise Scholarship, the West Virginia University Business and Economics College Dean’s Scholarship among other grants.
Our second scholar recipient, Gigi, will be attending Xaviar University in Cincinnati, Ohio where she will study Exercise Science. With already one foot in the entrepreneurship door, Gigi runs her own t-shirt design business under the label Bygigi. This business was born out of her own closet when she made a couple of t-shirts for herself a year ago that became an instant hit with at her school. Now, she creates new designs for t-shirts based on individual taste and style.
In the future, Gigi hopes to use her degree in Exercise Science to start a business centered around helping people be the best version of themselves with exercise and healthy lifestyle planning. She plans use the knowledge she has gained through her customization with the Bygigi label to work on offering her fitness clients a similar experience of individualized-care for their well-being, fitness and nutrition routines.
