Shannon E Corcoran, student at Clemson University, was awarded the 2017 Rocky Mountain Mattress Mark A. Forester Scholarship.
After being awarded the scholarship, Shannon shared:
I am about to start my senior year of college at Clemson University. I study mathematical sciences with an emphasis in financial mathematics and actuarial science. In my free time, when I am not studying, I dance on Clemson’s Division One Rally Cat Dance Team, volunteer with my honors fraternity Order of Omega and my sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha, and learn more about the actuarial career path from the Actuarial Science Club. My goal after graduation is to become an actuary. I am currently an actuarial intern within the Insurance and Actuarial Advisory Services department of Ernst & Young, in New York City! My internship and wrapping up my college education, with assistance from this scholarship honoring your brother Mark Forester, enables me get one step closer to achieving my goal! I could not be more appreciative of your support!
Congratulations Shannon. We thank you for honoring our heroes and recognizing their sacrifices for all of us.
