Scholarship Recipient Shares Benefits of Loomer-Mortenson Program

Kimberly Baich, a Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship recipient in 2015, 2016 and 2017, said the financial support from the ACA International Education Foundation allowed her to concentrate on her schooling and degree.

“As a past recipient of the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarships, I would like to thank you for this award. The generosity of ACA International has made the financial obligations of attending college a lot less stressful, enabling me to focus on what was truly important,” Baich said.

In May, Baich graduated Cum Laude from Southeast Missouri State University with a bachelor’s degree in child development.

ACA International’s Education Foundation increased the scholarship offerings this year to 36. A total of $55,000 will be awarded as the foundation continues its effort to help accounts receivable management industry employees and their children reach higher education goals.

The first-place prize is $10,000, followed by a $5,000 second-place award and three $3,000 third-place awards. Thirty-one individuals will receive fourth-place scholarships totaling $1,000 each.

Winners of the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarships will be announced at the ACA International 2018 Convention & Expo, held July 23-25 in Nashville.
