(PRESS RELEASE) BOSTON, MA – Zillion announces that Ms. Marina Mekhaeil is the 2024 recipient of its Women in STEM Scholarship. A Mechanical Engineering student at the Cullen College of Engineering of the University of Houston, Ms Mekhaeil’s passion for robotics and software programming, along with her strength of character and inspiring personal story, made her a standout among nearly 100 applicants.

Zillion created the “Zillion Women in STEM Scholarship” to aid and empower women to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The academic scholarship, designed to cover a portion of tuition costs for a female student majoring in a STEM discipline at an accredited US college or university, is profoundly important to Zillion. As a leader in embedded insurance, our innovation is directly attributed to a talented and diverse team, well represented by women in engineering and leadership roles.

“Zillion is rooted in creativity, learning and improving experiences”, said Adam Black, managing director at Zillion. “Ms. Mekhaeil has demonstrated a keen ability to embrace these skills while encouraging others, and particularly women, to advance in STEM. We are so excited to award our 2024 scholarship to a young person with tremendous drive and curiosity, and know that she will have a meaningful impact in her chosen field”.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
