Trade Show News Network is pleased to announce that the 2nd annual TSNN Awards $5,000 Student Scholarship awardee is Shauna H. Clark, a student pursuing event management at the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality.

The scholarship is sponsored by the Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority (Reno Tahoe USA), and Clark will receive the funds and be feted during the celebration gala dinner at the 5th Annual TSNN Awards Nov. 14-16 in Cleveland, Ohio.

“I am so grateful and honored to have been selected as the second ever recipient of this generous award,” said Shauna Clark.

She added, “Event planning is my passion, and trade shows are my focus. I am beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to network with the top talent this industry has to offer, and I know that it will be instrumental to my success in this exciting field.”

Clark has a very clear path into the trade show industry. Besides her studies, she also works as an assistant show coordinator at TT Publications, which produces shows and conferences for the towing and recovery industry.

“Shauna’s dream is work in the trade show industry, and she is getting great experience while still in school,” said Professor Deborah Breiter, Tourism, Events, and Attractions at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management.

She added, “She has excelled both in and out of the classroom.  We are all very proud of her accomplishments and this great honor.

The Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority has committed to sponsoring the TSNN Awards $5,000 scholarship through 2015.

“The Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority is proud and honored to once again team up with Trade Show News Network to present the second TSNN college scholarship fund,” said John Leinen, RSCVA’s vice president of convention and tourism sales.

He added, “Investing in our future industry leaders is one of our core values, which provides our brand the opportunity to make a positive impact in the Tradeshow industry. It is very rewarding to see how many excellent candidates applied for the scholarship. The quality of the upcoming talent entering the industry is very encouraging.”
