WKU Student Receives Scholarship from Tourism Cares

wku1 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/27/13) - Tourism Cares, the travel and tourism industry’s leading non-profit organization for preserving the travel industry for future generations, has awarded a $1,000 academic scholarship to Dylan Gordon of Crestwood, who is studying tourism and hospitality at WKU.

This scholarship is funded by members of National Tour Association. The Tourism Cares scholarship program annually awards 55 academic scholarships to students pursuing both undergraduate and graduate level travel, tourism and hospitality degrees at accredited colleges and universities.

Gordon was awarded the NTA Pat and Jim Host Scholarship.

“With the awarded scholarship I will continue to strive for excellence in the tourism industry,” Gordon said. “Challenging myself each day to become more than average and going above and beyond what is asked for the future of tourism. I dream of an industry that offers travelers unforgettable experiences that will help bring world cultures together, while at the same time, helping each other to preserve nature.”

Scholarship recipients are also invited to attend the Tourism Cares Mentoring Program at the annual NTA/UMA Travel Exchange in February 2014 in Los Angeles. The program gives students the opportunity to shadow professional mentors, build their professional network and attend industry workshops.

“Tourism Cares is dedicated to building a strong workforce for the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. I congratulate the 55 academic scholarship recipients being awarded this year and feel confident our student programs will help cultivate their potential as future leaders of the industry,” said Bruce Beckham, executive director of Tourism Cares.

About Tourism Cares: Tourism Cares is an innovative nonprofit organization working to preserve the travel experience for future generations in three important ways: awarding grants to tourism sites around the world, hosting volunteer restoration projects designed specifically for travel professionals, and building the future tourism workforce through scholarship, mentoring and internship programs.
