K-State interior design student receives scholarship

Friday, December 2, 2005

MANHATTAN -- Natalie Trudeau, a Kansas State University senior in interior design, Olathe, has received a $2,500 scholarship from the Network of Executive Women in Hospitality -- Lonestar Chapter in Dallas.

"I felt honored to receive the scholarship," Trudeau said. "Network of Executive Women in Hospitality is a national organization which prides itself on offering scholarships to those who need and deserve them. It felt great to be considered among that group."

Trudeau attended an awards ceremony Nov. 12 in Dallas, where she and other scholarship recipients were recognized.

Network of Executive Women in Hospitality was founded in 1984 to promote professional opportunities for women in the hospitality industry through professional contact, scholarship and education.

"The organization is one that started because women in the hospitality industry felt they were underappreciated," Trudeau said. "By banding together, these women created a force in the field and are becoming more influential."

Trudeau is planning to graduate in May 2006 and wants to work as an interior designer in the hospitality field.

She is a graduate of Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park.
