Women of NAMM Announce 2022 NAMM Show Scholarship Recipients
Women of NAMM (WON) has announced the six recipients of its annual NAMM show scholarship. They are: Hailey Canfield of Dietze Music, Alia DiLullo of Gator Co., Tamara Freethy of Cosmo Music, Kristi Noble of Quinlan and Fabish, Jessica Palmer of West Music/Music ConstructED and Mandy Stertz of Pecknel Music Company. The annual scholarship program seeks to support women with goals to connect, support and grow as professionals and leaders in the MI industry and to partake in professional development education, networking and mentoring with women who are industry leaders at The NAMM Show.
Each recipient was selected through an independent review process with priority given to those who have not attended a NAMM show. As a scholarship winner, each will receive a one-time stipend of $1,500 to support travel, attendance and participation, and job shadowing opportunities with female industry executives at the June show.
“I’m beyond excited to experience The NAMM Show in person for the first time and am grateful for the opportunity to do so with Women of NAMM,” Freethy said. “I am most looking forward to meeting and learning from other industry professionals, and connecting further within our MI community.”
Through the support of generous donors to the WON Fund, formerly known as the SWIM Fund, the group has hosted several virtual professional development roundtables, networking gatherings at The NAMM Show and Summer NAMM, as well as two leadership summits at NAMM’s headquarters in Carlsbad, California.
