Tourism Director awarded training scholarship

Granville County Tourism Director Angela Allen will be attending the Southeast Tourism Society (STS) Marketing College in May. The session will cover a broad-based curriculum of courses designed to teach marketing techniques from all facets of the tourism industry.


Allen has been named recipient of a full scholarship through the Miles Partnership, a worldwide marketing services team which helps promote travel experiences, to attend this session. A selection committee comprised of industry professionals recently notified Allen that she had been chosen for this scholarship, which will cover tuition and accommodations.


“The scholarship selection committee recognizes your hard work and dedication to the tourism industry in North Carolina,” Allen’s award notification reads. “We are pleased to offer you this scholarship in support of your continued success.”


This is the second time Allen has received this scholarship from the Miles Partnership. The 2017 “Rising Star” of the North Carolina Tourism Industry Association plans to continue gaining leadership and marketing skills at this upcoming training session, which will be held on the campus of the University of North Georgia from May 12 through May 17.
