Sarah Stafford of Boardman and Michael Turner of Baden, Pa., seniors in YSU’s Williamson College of Business Administration, have been selected as the John D. Beeghly Fellows for the 2010 fall semester.
The John D. Beeghly Fellows Program provides students with career-related work experience with businesses in the region. Stafford and Turner will each receive a $2,400 scholarship and will have the opportunity to work on a variety of business-related projects with clients of the Ohio Small Business Development Center at YSU. Projects may include market research, customer satisfaction surveys, export readiness studies, business plan development, market analysis, cost analysis and cash flow projections.
The Fellows Program is made possible by an endowment established at the YSU Foundation by Mr. Beeghly’s wife and children. John David Beeghly was a lifelong resident and businessman in Youngstown and son of area industrialist and philanthropist, Leon A. Beeghly. From 1967 until his death, Beeghly served as vice president and director of Standard Slag Co. and Stancorp, Inc., a holding company for industrial businesses. Read more.
