Mount Sterling, Ill. – Dot Foods and Dot Transportation, Incorporated (DTI) are proud to announce Ainsley Noble, of Burley, Idaho, as a 2014 Dot Scholarship Program recipient. The students are eligible to receive $500 per semester, up to $4000 total for a four-year college degree.
Noble, daughter of Randy and Cheryl Noble, is a graduate of Burley (ID) High School in Burley, will be attending Brigham Young University-Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho this fall to earn a degree in biology, and then seek additional schooling to become a clinical perfusionist. She has been involved in basketball, Drama Club, National Honor Society, Teens against Drugs and Alcohol, editor of the yearbook and several volunteer and community service projects. Noble’s mother, Cheryl, is a garage clerk at Dot Foods’ Idaho Distribution Center in Burley.
The Dot Scholarship Program was put in place to provide monetary support to students pursuing education beyond high school.
“We’re very excited about the talent displayed by all of the applicants of our scholarship program,” said Dot Foods President Joe Tracy. “We value education and personal advancement among our employees and their families. This was a promising, talented pool of scholarship applicants and winners, and they should all be proud.”
Noble, along with the three other winners at Dot’s distribution centers— Eann Diller (IL), Sadye Power (IN), and Tyler Seal (IL)—were chosen as scholarship winners. Every spring up to two scholarships are awarded from Dot’s Illinois locations (Joliet & Mt. Sterling) and up to two scholarships are awarded from Dot’s other facilities around the country. The Dot Scholarship application process is open to students in their senior year of high school who are children of current Dot and DTI employees. These are renewable scholarships, but students must maintain minimum requirements throughout their collegiate career.
