(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.

As an InsurTech focused on Personal Jewelry Insurance, Zillion created the “Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship” to aid and empower women to enter into the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. 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”.



Time to Do What You've Always Wanted? Time to Call Wilkerson.

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
