(PRESS RELEASE) PALO ALTO, CA — Zillion announces that Ms. Alisa Garcia is the 2022 recipient of the Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship. Ms. Garcia, a computer science major at Purdue University, was among an overwhelming list of highly qualified and impressive applicants who demonstrated a passion and commitment to STEM. She was selected for her undaunted ability to meet challenges, and for being a role model to young women interested in STEM.

The academic scholarship awarded by Zillion is designed to cover a portion of tuition costs for a female student majoring in a STEM discipline at an accredited college or university in the United States.

“Zillion values curiosity and a courage to challenge the status quo, and Ms. Garcia has embraced these guiding principles”, said Adam Black, managing director at Zillion. “We are overjoyed to award this year’s Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship to Ms. Garcia, and look forward to watching her excel and apply her talents in computer science while continuing to mentor others”.



Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
