JustJobs Announces 2015 Scholarship Award Winner

We are proud to announce that Katie Vittal, a nutrition student at Benedictine University, has won our 2015 JustJobs Scholarship award.

Katie’s essay was inspirational and energizing. Fascinated by health and fitness as a little girl, she began to understand the importance of nutrition while growing up. She “spent years reading about nutrition and developing a love for the art of eating well”, which eventually inspired her to become a dietitian. Though “being a 30 year old student is a far cry from being a 21 year old one”, she has “managed to pay the bills, buy my books, and keep my grades up all at the same time.” With one year left to graduate, she feels proud of how far she has come and plans to “approach the next chapter of my life with the passion and enthusiasm with which I have always approached everything and like an 8 year old working out to ‘Body by Jake’ before school, I will love every minute of it!”

Katie’s intelligence, passion, and obvious drive will no doubt allow her success in his chosen career as a Dietitian.

The six finalists – Katie Vittal, Taylor Green, Morgan Kleissler, John Kim, Jordan Bendler and Brit’ney McTush – were selected from thousands of other applicants for their dedication to learning, desire to make a positive impact on the world, and how their incredible stories have helped mold their future career paths. Choosing one winner was an incredibly difficult decision considering the exceptional student applicants and quality of their essays.

We want to thank our site visitors and all who voted to help us select a winner. The support shown through positive comments left for these students affirms both their career paths and the wonderful impact they already have on the lives of others.
