Ambi Names Annual Scholarship Winners

November 17, 2008

The Ambi Skincare brand of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. has named the five winners of its second annual scholarship in science and medicine, a program designed to recognize, reward and support African American and Hispanic women. The scholarship was inspired by its first recipient, Karen Morris-Priester. As the first grandmother to graduate Yale Medical School, the 44-year old Pennsylvania native’s story exemplified desire, drive and commitment to making a difference in her community as a physician.

This year, the following women have been awarded $10,000 toward tuition for any science or medicine program: Natalia Cortez of San Leandro, CA (Touro University); Charlene James of Cary, NC (Indiana University at Bloomington); Kellie Middleton of Norcross, GA (University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine); Stephanie Sanchez of Tucson, AZ (University of Arizona); and Ebonee Tabb of Lawrenceville, GA (Georgia Perimeter College). They were chosen from more than 3000 entries.

“We’re honored to support these extraordinary individuals and encourage more women to follow their dreams in the fields of science and medicine,” said Denna Singleton, product director of Ambi Skincare. More info: www.ambiskincare.com
