Pomerantz Scholarship Awarded
Kathryn Devereaux Picked to Receive
Jacqueline and Russell Pomeranz ITM 2022 Scholarship for $6,070
ITM is proud to announce that Kathryn Devereaux was selected from an exceptional pool of applicants as the third recipient of the Jacqueline and Russell Pomeranz ITM scholarship. The scholarship was established by the Pomeranz family, in honor of their beloved mother and brother/husband, along with other generous donors, in the spring 2020 term.
The Selection Committee included ITM advisory board members, Marc D. Schein, National Co-Chair Cyber Center of Excellence, Marsh & McLennan Agency, Prof. Elizabeth Hodur, Senior Director of International Trade at Ascena Retail Group Inc. and ITM’1992, and Eric Hertz, President at Center for Retail Real Estate.
Kathryn uniquely impressed the Committee with her well-rounded background, penchant for immersing herself in new experiences to optimize her learning opportunities, as well as clear and concise communicator of her ideas and path to achieving her goals. As a future philanthropist and founder of a non-profit organization while heavily engaging in school and community activities as well as avid discusser of political science and international relations, she personifies Jacqueline and Russell Pomeranz’s engagement in political discussions as well as community-oriented and non-profit activities.
As Contracts & Procurement Analyst of The Government of Nunavut in Canada, Kathryn managed multi-dimensional Requests for Tender, Requests for Proposals, and Requests for Information contracts, fostered strong working relationships with stakeholders and suppliers through virtual communication, and executed project management tasks. As Political Analyst Summer Intern of Nunavut Liquor and Cannabis Commission, she implemented its unique branding strategy across the Commission’s policies and identified weaknesses as well as opportunities for its growth. As Creative Director & Founder of Iqaluit Dance Academy, Kathryn established this local arts academy for over three hundred three- to seventeen-year old children, who participated in a classical dance program that fostered confidence within a multi-cultural space as well as implemented an instructor training program to ensure success and longevity.
Kathryn is Vice President of the International Trade Student Association, where she has been heavily organizing and promoting its events and seeking resources to make them possible.
After graduating from ITM, Kathryn plans to pursue a career involving technology in supply chain and global trade. She is trying this out, having recently accepted the offer to be Product Manager Intern at Computer Generated Solutions. In the next five years, she plans to utilize her drive and passion for improving the logistical operations of one or more global apparel company/ies through specialized international trade lessons, integrity, kindness and belief in her ability to effect the transformation.
We hope that you will all join us in congratulating Kathryn as ITM’s third Jacqueline and Russell Pomeranz ITM scholar!
