NACS Scholarship winners are people in the industry who clearly demonstrate dedication to achieving excellence in retailing, strong leadership skills, potential for future growth as a leader, and persistence in the pursuit of education.
The NACS Scholarship program was created to recognize and support industry employees who demonstrate the potential and the determination to someday hold positions of senior leadership in the industry. These scholarships help develop retail leaders by providing them with $3,000 for costs of undergraduate or community college education. Each recipient is also provided with the opportunity to attend the NACS Show (including transportation costs) to learn more about career paths in the convenience and fuel retailing industry. This year the NACS Show is in Las Vegas, Nevada! Candidates need to complete a comprehensive application package consisting of an application, a personal essay and a nomination form, completed by a senior company executive.
Past QuickChek NACS Scholarship winners are Eric Rush and Joe Russo, IT and Chris Reich, HR. Congratulations to 2014 NACS Scholarship Award Winners Dawn and Geneva!
