The Lee County Area Technology Center is proud to announce that Office Technology student, Kayla Combs, has been named recipient of the 2016 KPMG Future Leaders Scholarship. KPMG Future Leaders Mentoring Program in conjunction with the Office of Condoleezza Rice selected 16 top high school senior female students from around the country to participate in this program.
The KPMG Future Leaders Program involved a very competitive application process which included four 500 word essays. The program strives to foster a strong foundation for young women to succeed in college and ultimately in their long-term business career.
The students selected will:
1) Receive a KPMG Future Leaders Scholarship of $10,000 per year for 4 years of college.
2) Attend a three day KPMG Future Leaders Retreat the summer before their freshman year of college, at Stanford University in Stanford, CA with one mentor (July 11-13, 2016).
KPMG is deeply committed to the advancement, development and empowerment of women.
As women break glass ceilings in the workplace and excel on the international athletic stage, the influence of women will only continue to grow and affect our society for the better. In 2015 KPMG, in collaboration with the PGA of America, the LPGA, and NBC, hosted the first ever KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, to elevate the game of women’s golf, and Women’s Leadership Summit, to reach the next generation of women leaders to senior leadership positions in business. Accomplished women from around the country participated in Summit discussions about women in the workplace. The 2015 tournament was won by Inbee Park, a 26 year old from South Korea.
With this initiative, the KPMG Future Leaders Program in partnership with Dr. Condoleezza Rice, will “pay it forward” to future generations of women leaders by providing leadership training to top high school senior female students from around the country preparing for their college career.
