Woman receives $1,000 scholarship

The Verdugo Glen chapter of the American Business Women's Assn. has named Arpa Shahijanian of Burbank, a business student at Glendale Community College, as the recipient of a national $1,000 scholarship. This year's scholarship was named in memory of Laurali Fey of Glendale, a longtime member.

Arpa was selected by the association's Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Trustees for her academics, extracurricular activities, work experience and future goals.

At Glendale Community College, she is vice president of finance for the Associated Students, on the Dean's Honors List and in the State Honor Society. She also is employed part time as the Internet marketing director of Glendale's Grid Graphics, a school tutor, college student mentor and dance studio volunteer dancer.

The Verdugo Glen chapter meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday for a dinner business meeting and professional development programs at the Glendale Elks Lodge, 120 E. Colorado St., Glendale. For information, call (818) 842-8626.
