Ali Strauss is the Winner of this Years Past Presidents Scholarship from SAAGNY

WESTBURY, N.Y., November 20, 2015 – We would like to formally congratulate our very own Ali Strauss as the winner of this year’s Past Presidents Scholarship from SAAGNY. The Past Presidents Scholarship Award provides the recipient the opportunity to attend a program that will expand his or her knowledge in the promotional products industry.

The Past Presidents Scholarship Awards are in honor of former presidents. One outstanding past president is Linda Robinson. Linda was a woman ahead of her time; she entered the Specialty Advertising field when only a handful of women were in the industry. She took advantage of every educational opportunity to build a successful business, earning not only the respect of her peers but attracting many friends throughout the years as well.

Linda played a major role in shaping the growth of SAAGNY, including a term as president. She was well on her way to making an impact on the Board of PPAI. Linda was a compelling, fair-minded individual and gifted professional who truly loved the challenge of the sale. Her generous nature allowed her to share with others the wealth of information that she acquired over the years. She distinguished herself as a leader, a teacher and a mentor.

“We are so proud that Ali Strauss has won this particular award,” said the Director of Sales, Rachel Levin. “Ali exemplifies the nature of this scholarship as she too is a professional who loves the challenge of the sale.”

Ali has earned her CAS and continues to utilize the education provided in this industry to share with others and make knowledge-based decisions that will enhance her growth.

“At Motivators, Ali is an outstanding sales representative, manager, co-worker and friend to all,” said Levin. “This award could not have gone to a more appropriate candidate.”
