Each year the Kentucky Business Society (KBS) awards two $250 and one $500 scholarships to applicants attending a Kentucky college or university and majoring in a business field. This year’s top scholarship award was presented to Avoe Fraser, a business student at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC).

The KBS scholarship is based on grades, an application essay, and other supporting documents such as transcripts and a letter of recommendation from a business faculty.

“I was thrilled and honored to learn I had been selected as the recipient for the Kentucky Business Society Scholarship!” said Avoe Fraser. “To say I’m grateful for their generosity would be an understatement.” “Southcentral Kentucky Community & Technical College has given me the best opportunity to excel in my higher education goals. The faculty and staff have always offered me a helping hand, and I hold my professors in the highest regard inside and outside of the classroom.”

Fraser is a current SKYCTC student enrolled in the Associate in Applied Science in Business Administration and Human Resource Management. She will graduate this spring and her goals include seeking business opportunities and possibly an internship to launch her career in the human resource field. 

The Kentucky Business Society is a professional organization made up of business educators in Kentucky who seek to network with one another and with area business leaders with the purpose of creating meaningful and relevant business courses in Kentucky.  KBS members look for input from business leaders to help guide business curriculum.  KBS also grants three scholarships every year to recognize outstanding performance of their business students.

"I am so proud of Avoe for applying for and winning the Kentucky Business Society Scholarship,” says SKYCTC Assistant Professor April Harris.  She is a phenomenal student and a very hard working and determined young lady in and outside of class."

Harris also serves as a KBS Director and President Elect. "For me, the Kentucky Business Society, has been a way to meet and learn from so many wonderful business educators in the state.  I have added things to my courses that I never would have considered having not met the other members of KBS.  I am truly thankful for the connections I have made with some wonderfully devoted business educators.  I would recommend all business educators to consider joining KBS," says Harris.
