Second Annual Scholarship for Sustainable Hospitality Awarded

We are pleased to announce that the recipient of 2nd annual Scholarship for Sustainable Hospitality award is George Washington University (GW) School of Business student Alexis Aliquo.

The scholarship is funded by VSAG, Founding Farmers and Farmers & Fishers restaurant in conjunction with the GW Power & Promise Fund.  The annual $5,000 scholarship was created to support a GW student currently studying sustainability who hopes to one day build a successful career in sustainable hospitality.

Alexis was chosen because she embodies that dedication to achieve a career focused on sustainable practices. Hailing from Staten Island, NY, Alexis has proven a successful academic performer while studying sustainable hospitality on her road to a 2013 GW School of Business degree in Marketing and Hospitality Management.  The self-described “theater loving, band geek, sorority girl” is now well on her way to achieving her dream of landing a hotel sales or marketing position post graduation that will provide her with the professional experience to one day open a hotel of her own.

As the management team providing all concept development and on-going restaurant services for Founding Farmers and Farmers & Fishers, VSAG is pleased to celebrate the continuation of sustainable efforts through the Scholarship for Sustainable Hospitality award.

The Scholarship for Sustainable Hospitality award will be formally presented on April 20, 2012 at a special GW scholarship event. We congratulate Alexis on winning this award and wish her luck in all her future endeavors.
