Book Company V.P. Receives Scholarship Award
Roni S. Wright, vice president at The Book Company, Delray Beach, Fla., was recently named the 2006 recipient of the Linda Robinson Scholarship. Established by the SAAGNY Board of Directors in 1995 after Robinson’s untimely death, the scholarship is awarded to one industry professional each year for the cost to attend the PPAI President’s Forum.
“It’s an honor and privilege to attend the President’s Forum as the SAAGNY Linda Robinson Scholarship recipient,” said Wright. “Linda was someone I respected and admired greatly. She was truly an inspiration to me as I came into my own as an industry professional.”
A 20-year veteran of the promotional products industry, Wright has been with The Book Company since 2004. She is a speaker and trained PPAI facilitator. She currently serves nationally as a board member of RAC and a PPAI committee member, and has also held positions as a past executive board member of the Promotional Products College Education Foundation and past president of Promotional Products Association of Florida. Wright is also a supplier candidate for the PPAI Board of Directors for 2007.
A past president of SAAGNY, Robinson entered the industry when only a small number of women were in the business and played a significant role in shaping the growth of the association.
