19 A li Group North America, in partner- ship with The Berti Foundation, proudly announces the first winners of its new collegiate scholarship program. The Berti Foundation Scholarship Program aims to sup- port dependents of Ali Group North America U.S.-based employees. The foundation, named for Ali Group founder Mr. Luciano Berti and his wife, Giancarla, focuses on supporting educa- tion and the arts. Nearly 100 applicants applied in 2018, the program's first year. "The program has been created to inspire and educate the workforce of the future, enabling students to achieve their educational goals," says Filippo Berti, vice president of The Berti Foundation. "As a company, Ali Group North America strongly believes in supporting our employees and helping their children fulfill their dreams of going to college." The program offers renewable scholarships of up to $10,000 annually to cover qualifying tuition and fees. If the recipient maintains the mini- mum requirements, the scholarship automati- cally renews for up to four years or until the individual earns a bachelor's degree, whichever comes first. To be eligible for the scholarships, appli- cants must be high school seniors/graduates or college undergraduates who are dependent children of full-time Ali Group North America U.S. employees and are planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate studies at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university for the entire academic year. Each winner demonstrated outstanding academic achievements and a passion for their respective fields of study. The scholarships were awarded to the following students, representing six Ali Group companies: Cheyenne Barger, Parker, Pa.; Amber Gaberseck (Beverage-Air) Kalin Collins, Colchester, Vt.; David Shangraw (Edlund) Britini Dycus, Auburn, Wash.; Chad Dycus (Belshaw Adamatic) Ke'Ondrae Gilbert, Denmark, S.C.; Harold Gilbert (Scotsman) Aylin Gomez, Lakewood, Colo.; Conrado Gomez (Ice-O-Matic) Destine Johnson, Allendale, S.C.; Katrina Johnson (Scotsman) Nicholas Pham, Midway City, Calif.; Giao Pham (CMA Dishmachines) "Education is the cornerstone of a bright future for the next generation and for this country, but the cost of a quality education continues to rise. We at Ali Group are happy to help make getting a good education a little more affordable for these seven children of our colleagues," says Filippo Berti. PEOPLE
