Garmann Miller has named Norwalk High School senior Shyanne Moser the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship, while Claire Lamm, a senior at Minster High School, was awarded $500 in the firm’s annual Game Changers Scholarship program. The funds help finance higher education for graduating seniors who are seeking careers in professional design.
Moser plans to attend Mount Vernon Nazarene University to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering, and Lamm is enrolled as an architecture major at Ball State University.
“The scholarship program allows us to invest in our industry’s future innovators,” said Garmann Miller CEO Eric Baltzell. “We feel it’s important to give back to the communities that have supported us, while helping students with their costs of higher education.”
The scholarship program was launched in 2021 by the firm’s Game Changers committee, a dedicated group of GM employees who plan and perform philanthropic endeavors. The committee contacted guidance counselors of school districts with whom GM is currently partnering on a design project or districts that recently have worked with Garmann Miller.
Eligible students were those seeking a career in architecture, engineering, interior design, landscape architecture or a closely related field. The committee developed an application that challenged students to answer essay questions about their future career path and the community impact they hoped to make through their profession.
