Business Babes Society (BBS)
Scholarship Winners 2014

TWO SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED IN 2014

Business Babes Scholarship, started in 2014, was created to provide an incentive and reward for budding female entrepreneurs.   Our Scholarship presents $1000 to an exemplary and high-achieving female Madison County senior who is pursuing a degree in Business Administration.

After our Scholarship board received and reviewed the applicants, they couldn't just choose one so they chose TWO!  Here are the two first annual Business Babes Society Scholarship Winners in 2014:

Hannah Durbin
Model Laboratory High School

Hannah is a senior at Model Laboratory High School with aspirations to attend the University of Notre Dame, Hillsdale College, Centre College or Murray State University and major in Business Administration/Marketing. 

Hannah has always known that she wanted to be a leader; and has learned in her years that to be successful in business, one must be a leader. The application of her intended business degree directly relates to her love for healthy living. From running her first mile race at the age of 4 to her current job as a soccer coach at Madison Indoor, her love for exercise and healthy living continues to be a passion in her life.

In combination with Hannah's leadership skills and love for exercise, she plans to use her business degree to open a fitness and nutrition center that reinstates the core values of health. She aspires for her fitness center to revolutionize the concept of combining diet and physical activity.

In addition, conjoining to her gym will be a restaurant staffed with nutritionists who will plan and cook all meals for gym members. Her ultimate goal, to reduce the 30% obesity rate in Kentucky and have a healthier community with longer-living citizens with happier lives.

To quote Hannah, "A business degree is more than a major-- it's a lifestyle chosen for leaders like me."

Brittani Montgomery
Madison Central High School

Brittani is a senior at Madison Central High School with aspirations to attend EKU or UK and double major in Business Administration and Hospital Administration. Because her mother is a business instructor and FBLA advisor and father is an entrepreneur who has owned his own franchise for 10 years, Brittani is no stranger to the idea of owning her own business in her near future.  And materially participating in business activities has inspired her to pursue a degree in Business Administration.

Brittani plans to give back to the community by creating programs to help people living with diabetes as she has noticed a lack of resources and education. Furthermore, she plans to start a non-profit organization that will work hand-in-hand with the Juvenile Diabetes Association in the search for a cure and help others with the financial costs associated with this disease.

Brittany has a favorite quote by Epictetus, "It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters."

Brittani says, "It was a natural choice to pursue a business career, but it was my reaction to what happened in my life that caused me to choose a business career in conjunction with health sciences to help others."
