LA ROCHE STUDENT EARNS ZONTA BUSINESS SCHOLARSHIP


4/30/2010

Pittsburgh, April 30, 2010 – The Zonta Three Rivers Pittsburgh North Chapter recently awarded La Roche College student Chiara Irakoze with the Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship. Irakoze, a native of Burundi, will begin her junior year at La Roche in the fall 2010. She is majoring in Accounting. The scholarship is valued at $2,000 and will go towards Irakoze’s next academic year.

Zonta Three Rivers Pittsburgh North is the local chapter of Zonta International, a worldwide organization of executives in business and the professions that work together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy.

Jane M. Klausman was a member of the Zonta Club of Syracuse, N.Y., and Zonta International Parliamentarian from 1990 to 1995. She knew first-hand the challenges faced by young women pursuing careers in business and understood the importance of helping women become business leaders. Klausman left a generous donation to the Zonta International Foundation. The scholarships are helping women pursuing undergraduate degrees in business management overcome gender barriers, from the classroom to the boardroom.
