Contest Yields Scholarship

Carroll Graduate School of Management student Jacquelyn Taylor received a $5,000 scholarship, and she and her four teammates each earned $500 cash awards by winning the school's 18th annual Diane Weiss Consulting Competition held on May 6 and 7.

The competition featured 19 first-year MBA teams that presented the results of semester-long consulting projects involving various area businesses and nonprofit organizations. A blue-ribbon panel of judges evaluated the projects.

Taylor's group, which included Suvia Evans, Howard Loh, Robert LaVigne and Brian Bloch, developed a plan for Jacquelyn's Wholesale Bakery, a Medford-based enterprise seeking to expand. She was the first recipient of the Diane Weiss Scholarship, a $5,000 award funded by an endowment created last December by the family of Diane Weiss, a 1985 alumnus who died of cancer in 1986. Endowment funds also supported the cash prizes to the winning team members.
