LA ROCHE STUDENTS RECEIVE REAL ESTATE SCHOLARSHIPS


12/11/2006

Pittsburgh, November 22—Two local La Roche students majoring in real estate each received $1,500 scholarships from the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS® (SIOR) at a dinner event Tuesday, Oct. 24. This is the third year for this award to be given to La Roche College students, although the amount has varied from year to year. It is the first year that two exemplary students were chosen by SIOR, whose national organization co-sponsors the scholarship. SIOR is the leading professional commercial and industrial real estate association.

Lisa Allen is a sophomore from Wexford, Pa., who has been attending La Roche since January 2006. A retired Navy reservist, she is a non-traditional student who has always wanted a career in real estate, and she values having a degree in the field. “I am finally achieving my lifetime goal of attaining a degree and furthering my education in real estate to become a broker,” she said.

Katelyn Navilliat is a sophomore from Gibsonia, Pa., who has a lifelong love of homes and helping families to find the perfect place to hang their hats. She considers real estate a unique major that will someday help her to help others start their lives in a new home. “A goal of mine is to make a difference in the world, and what is a better way to do that than helping new families, old friends and new beginnings.” Her latter reference is in keeping with her goals to someday help small businesses find the best place to be housed.
