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.

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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
