RefrigiWear and the World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) have announced Maria Rosas of Western Gateway Storage as the winner of the WFLO Scholarship for the 50th WFLO Institute. This event is being held February 8-12, 2014 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta GA.
For three years, RefrigiWear and the WFLO have awarded one student a full scholarship for tuition and related expenses to attend the WFLO Institute, the cold storage industry’s training event. Recipients are selected based on their performance, leadership skills, and dedication to the industry.
“RefrigiWear is a proud supporter of the WFLO, and we are excited to collaborate with them to each year to select a recipient for this scholarship,” said Corey Rosenbusch, president and chief operating officer of WFLO - a Core Partner of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA).
Rosas began working at Western Gateway Storage Company as the assistant office manager and now leads the sales and administrative team as logistics and office manager. She is also an active member of her community, serving as a volunteer at her children’s schools and with her church group. Her determination, dedication, and hard work have been invaluable to her company and resulted in her nomination and being awarded this scholarship.
As the recipient of this scholarship, Rosas will be recognized during the opening session of the WFLO Institute and at a dinner to be held in her honor during the event. In addition, RefrigiWear will bring her to its manufacturing plant in north Georgia for a tour.
