ACHIEVEMENT

ACA International Education Foundation
Awards College Scholarships
15 students earned $30,000 in scholarship money through the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship Program.

I

n June, the ACA International Education
Foundation awarded $30,000 in college
scholarships to 15 students as part of the
Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship Program.
Thanks to the success of the 2017
Collector's Challenge-a month-long
fundraiser in April in which member
companies raised funds for the scholarship
program-the foundation was able to
maintain its momentum from the previous
year, when it awarded more money
than ever before to seven times as many
students as it did in 2015.
Scholarship applicants had to be current
employees of a company affiliated with the
credit and collection industry or the child
of an employee. Winners were selected
based on their cumulative grade point
average and a two- to three-page essay
about of the value of consumer credit to our
nation's economy.
"The Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship
Program has been helping ACA member
company employees and their families
further their education for more than 30
years, and we are proud to continue the
tradition with these 15 talented individuals,"
said Jim Richards, chair of the ACA
International Education Foundation board.

Adam Trimble received a $10,000
scholarship-the top prize. He is a compliance
manager at Ad Astra Recovery Services Inc. in
Wichita, Kan. Trimble is currently attending
Wichita State University for pre-law and
intends to continue with law school for the
purpose of continuing his work in collections.
Joseph Possumato received a $5,000
scholarship. His parent is employed by
Certified Credit & Collection Bureau in
Somerville, N.J. He plans to attend College
of William & Mary and study economics.
