Ferris Student Marjorie Banda Receives MSCA Scholarship

July 9, 2018

Marjorie Banda, a freshman in Ferris State University’s HVACR program, was the recipient of this year’s MSCA Scholarship in recognition of her scholastic achievement. In a thank you letter to MSCA Executive Director Barbara Dolim, Marjorie said, “I am truly grateful for the financial support that I have received from you as an organization. It will definitely make a big difference and leave a mark that will be with me as long as I live. I am motivated to work even harder in school and obtain my HVACR Bachelor’s Degree.”

Marjorie is involved in several student organizations, including the Greater Michigan MSCA Student Chapter, which presented the scholarship.

In the conclusion to her letter, Marjorie noted that, “Supporting females like myself in STEM programs instills confidence in women that indeed the industry does believe that women do have the potential to contribute to the industry.”

MSCA provides scholarship money annually to the MSCA Chapter of Ferris State University to be awarded to a student (or students) in the university’s HVACR program, as selected by department faculty, based on scholastic achievement and other criteria. MSCA representatives serve on the department’s advisory board and chapter members are invited to attend the annual MSCA conference where they have an opportunity to meet with MSCA members from around the country.
