The first JUMBO Interactive WILL Scholarship Grant:

“JUMBO WILL Scholarship”

JUMBO Interactive’s gift of $50,000 to fund scholarships will enable emerging female leaders to participate in training and educational seminars.  The first recipient, to be announced September 30, will receive an all-expense-paid trip including round-trip airfare and hotel, breakfasts, lunches, and receptions to attend the WILL session in NYC on October 30.  THANK YOU JUMBO Interactive!

We have started a tradition of holding a WILL session on the afternoon of the second day of PGRI conferences.   Thank you to IGT for sponsoring the WILL session at PGRI SMART-Tech Florida last February, and to Lottery Directors/CEO’s Rebecca Hargrove (TN), Gretchen Corbin (GA), Sue van der Merwe (Tabcorp Lotteries, Australia), May Scheve Reardon (MO), Lynne Roiter (Quebec), Sarah Taylor (IN), and Keynote Speaker Ann Simmons Nicholson, for leading a wonderfully entertaining afternoon that was both inspiring and enlightening.   

The next WILL session will be held the afternoon of Wednesday October 30 to immediately follow the PGRI Lottery Expo event at the Park Lane Hotel in New York City.   Sponsor Scientific Games Corp., Rebecca Hargrove and colleagues are planning a very special event, including Keynote Speaker Frances Fragos Townsend.  Ms. Townsend is the former Homeland Security Advisor to United States President George W. Bush, serving from 2004-2007. She has also served as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Combating Terrorism. In 2008, Ms. Townsend joined CNN as a contributor, then moved to CBS where she is now a national security analyst and political commentator on TV. Ms. Townsend is also president of the Counter Extremism Project.  We look forward to an exciting session!
