Armour College of Engineering student, Veronica Ibarra (BME 4th Year), has been selected as a recipient of the 2014 Organization of Latinos at Exelon (OLE) Scholarship. She was one of fifteen individuals selected to receive the scholarship out of 90 Latino college students from Illinois who applied.
OLE has been able to provide scholarships, totaling over $200,000 to deserving students over the last 10 years. The OLE Scholarship was established with specific goals in mind: to help students gain access into post-secondary education, help students stay in their respective institutions, and help students pursue their dreams.
As an Employee resource group within the Exelon family of companies, OLE exists to assist Exelon and its Operating Companies in achieving its strategic business goals. These goals include diversity and inclusion, fostering employee career development, and maintaining a strong presence in the Latino community by utilizing the talent of OLE member employees.
Ibarra and the other recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony on October 15, 2014. They have also been invited to meet the company executives and vendor sponsors that make the OLE Scholarship possible at an annual golf outing to be held on September 13, 2014.
