Three Philadelphia Students Awarded Scholarships

Three Philadelphia undergraduate students have been awarded scholarships from ASM Global, the global leader in venue and event strategy and management, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority.

Vivian Freymoyer, Michelle Linahan and Daniella Sirleaf were announced as recipients of the inaugural ASM Global Stars Scholarship Program, along with 22 other students from across the United States. Frenmoyer is an incoming freshman at Saint Joseph’s University, and Linahan and Sirleaf are both business majors at the Community College of Philadelphia.

The scholarships awarded to the Philadelphia students were matched by the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority, allowing more students to benefit from the award and further supporting their education and career goals.

“I am incredibly honored to receive this award and I truly appreciate the support from ASM Global and the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority,” says Frenmoyer, a food marketing major. “I am looking forward to attending Saint Joseph’s University in the fall and am eager to begin my next chapter.”

“The Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority is committed to investing in the future of the hospitality industry,” says John J. McNichol, President and CEO, Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority. “Initiatives such as the ASM Global Stars Scholarship Program are closely aligned with the overall mission of the Authority and provide a wonderful opportunity to make education more accessible for all. We are proud to support the academic pursuits of these three scholars.”

The ASM Global Stars Scholarship program is a part of ASM Global Acts, a corporate social responsibility platform launched in 2021, and provides educational and career development opportunities through scholarship awards and prospective internships to diverse and under-resourced communities.

“One of the key pillars of the ASM Global ACTS initiative is investing in people, and at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, we are committed to creating opportunities for the youth in our communities to have access to the resources they need to build their skills for a meaningful career in the hospitality and tourism industry,” says Kelvin D. Moore, regional vice president, ASM Global, and general manager at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. “We also thank the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority for their continued partnership and the shared mission of making a difference in the communities in which we serve.”
