A former Hugg & Hall Equipment Company (Hugg & Hall) intern, Lauren Horne, was recently awarded the Burlsworth Memorial Scholarship. Lauren worked as an intern in the Client Engagement Team, in the summer of 2018, where she contributed to customer service and digital marketing efforts. She is a successful honors student studying supply chain management at the University of Arkansas’ Sam M. Walton College of Business.
Each year $5,000 scholarships are awarded to 13 or more students who are characterized as academic overachievers. Like Brandon Burlsworth, these are students, primarily from smaller towns, who did not receive much attention when they arrived on campus as freshmen, but who have, through hard work, perseverance and character become academic “stars,” according to the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation.
Since 1999, hundreds of Burlsworth scholarships have been awarded at the University of Arkansas, according to the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation. The students are selected by the University of Arkansas Scholarship Committee. Members of the Burlsworth family and the board of directors of the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation travel to Fayetteville to recognize these outstanding students.
The Hugg & Hall team is honored to have hosted such a promising student and wishes Lauren all the best with her bright future/career, ahead!
