Lauren Mobley Awarded the 2014 IIAG Past Presidents – YAC Scholarship
Congratulations to Lauren Mobley, a junior at the University of West Georgia, who was awarded the 2014 IIAG Past Presidents – YAC Scholarship of $1000. Lauren’s mother Tracy, also a college student- working towards her masters in accounting, is an employee of IIAG member agency Garner & Glover Company in Rome.
“Lauren has managed to maintain a stellar academic record while at the same time working her way through school,” says Mike Clark, IIAG Past President (Garner & Glover/Rome). “She is an exceptionally bright and talented young lady with the kind of work ethic that unfortunately is not all that common today. This young lady is going to be successful in whatever career she pursues.”
A speech language pathology major, Lauren has a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and plans to continue her studies at West Georgia until she earns her master’s degree. “ I look forward to the day that I can go into a school and help students struggling with speech disorders and give them the assistance needed to succeed,” said Lauren. “ I have always had a passion for children and helping them gives me so much enjoyment. I once saw a speech pathologist assisting a student and I knew at that moment, that is what I wanted to do. It is a very hard career choice, but I know that my dedication and drive will keep me motivated.”
“The scholarship committee found Lauren’s achievements exemplary,” says the Scholarship Committee Chairman, IIAG Immediate Past President Betsy Olson, (Rhodes Risk Advisors/Atlanta). “We are very happy to award Lauren with this honor and wish her continued success in her academic and professional pursuits.”
