Eastern Shore Associates Insurance (ESA), a Trusted Choice® agency, recently announced the winners of the agency’s first annual Cayuga Community College (CCC) Commencement and Scholarship awards, said Robert K. Wallace, agency president and CEO.
“Kyle Lawton of Oswego is our 2011 Commencement Award winner and Shelly A. Crawford of Sterling is our 2011-12 Scholarship Award winner,” said Wallace, who is also a member of the Cayuga Community College Foundation Board. “Both Kyle and Shelly have pursued degrees in Business Administration at Cayuga, and each will receive a $1,000 award.
“Eastern Shore is delighted to have the opportunity to recognize these students for their academic success and we look forward to many years of partnership with CCC.”
Students eligible for the awards must attend CCC’s Fulton campus and pursue a business-related course of study. CCC Business faculty selects the winners.
“We are so grateful for the support of our corporate partner, Eastern Shore Associates,” said College President Daniel P. Larson. “These awards enable our students to continue to pursue their educational and career goals, and remind them that their success contributes to the successful future of the whole community.”
Lawton will attend SUNY Buffalo this fall to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Crawford and her husband, Scott, own Crawford Auto Transport LLC in Sterling, and she is earning her Business Administration degree to assist in managing her family business.
