Roger Runyan 2021 Scholarship Recipient -
Katherine Anderson

Career goals are a wonderful thing to have - and we should all have them. The Roger Runyan Scholarship allows employees, such as myself, the needed funds available for career development opportunities to achieve their professional goals.

In 2019, I received my Masters of Education in Educational Technology, Adult Learning and Training emphasis. As a Career Engagement Specialist for the Regional Economic Development Center, I bridge the gap between education and employment, providing a one-stop-shop for workforce training, the coordination of countywide job fairs, and more. My degree has allowed me to manage larger projects, gain more responsibility, and offer a higher level of credibility from my peers in the economic development arena.

Thank you for the opportunity to receive this funding and continue my education. I am now implementing the programs I wrote about in my course work. How awesome is that!
