Milagros Amesquita is the 6th winner of the Maureen Filetti Memorial Scholarship
— Kevin Keating, President of HANGAR12
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Congratulations go out to Milagros Amesquita, who recently graduated from Buffalo Grove High School (Township High School District 214) in Illinois and was named this year’s Maureen Filetti Memorial Scholarship recipient. Milagros received $1,000 from HANGAR12 towards her college education and will major in Business and Marketing at University of Wisconsin in Madison this semester.
Throughout her middle school and high school careers, she discovered her creative side. She prepared passion projects on Shark Tank inventions, information on her home country of Peru and biographies of famous singers and actors. This resulted in accomplishing her main goal of creating attention-grabbing marketing presentations.
Milagros said, “A marketing career will give the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment and explore innovation solutions to engage and captivate viewers through the marketing process. This will enable me to develop my critical problem-solving skills and enhance my professionalism. I look forward to working on faculty-led research projects at college, hopefully engaging with topics of economic and social research, delving deeper into behavioral and consumer data.”
The Scholarship honors Maureen Filetti, who attended Buffalo Grove High School and worked as an advertising executive for many years at HANGAR12 agency in Chicago and brought positivity and light into the lives of everyone she knew. Maureen passed away 6 years ago on September 19th. The scholarship continues to be funded by HANGAR12. Congratulations to Milagros on her well-deserved honor! And as Maureen always said, #staypositive
