Four Interior Design students; Amanda D’Orazio, Adam Loporto, Jennie Sandahl and Adalgisa Zeppetelli are the first students to receive this newly offered scholarship award. The students were required to submit a portfolio of their work for review by Mrs. Stempel and a team of jurors. The students are chosen based on their scholastic and design merits with reference to their intention to complete a degree in Interior Design. Brendalyn Stempel is an interior designer and also an active member of the School of Architecture and Design’s Board of Directors. It is through her generosity and desire to promote education in the field of interior design that this scholarship was initiated.
