A JAMAS Capital Management, empresa privada de inversiones, le complace anunciar que Cristian Toledano ha recibido la Beca JAMAS dirigida a Futuros Líderes Hispanos.

Actualmente Cristian cursa estudios universitarios en Bryan College (Dayton, TN), donde se está especializando en Business enfocado hacia Recursos Humanos e Informática. “Es un honor saber que mi ensayo ha sido seleccionado entre cientos de ensayos en todo el país¨ ha dicho Cristian, “Esto supone un gasto financiero menos para mis padres. Verdaderamente es un honor ser el primero en recibir esta beca¨

Cristian vino a los Estados Unidos cuando tenía cinco años de edad. Se matriculó en una escuela infantil donde no podía hablar ni escribir en inglés. Desde su inicio fue un estudiante con mucha motivación, Cristian trabajó por si mismo para aprender inglés tan pronto como fuera posible, sumergiéndose en libros en el idioma inglés y viendo televisión. Cuando cumplió ocho años, Cristian hacía de traductor e interprete para sus padres y otros miembros de la familia. Después de graduarse en el instituto, Cristian organizó un torneo de fútbol para reunir dinero con el que pagar sus estudios universitarios.

“Estamos muy orgullosos de todo lo que Cristian ha logrado. Sabemos que continuará logrando nuevos triunfos una vez se gradúe” dijo Dr. Daniel B. Gates, profesor asistente y Director del programa en Bryan College. Cristian se encuentra en estos momentos encaminado a su graduación en Mayo 2017. Será el primer miembro de su familia que curse estudios universitarios y que se gradúe en una universidad.

“Cristian representa todo en lo que se basa la beca JAMAS para Futuros Líderes Hispanos”, ha dicho Ben O. Turnage, fundador y Presidente de JAMAS Capital Management. “Él ha mostrado motivación para destacar en todo lo que hace, y con éxito a la hora de demostrarlo. Nosotros, en JAMAS estamos orgullosos de poder contribuir en el éxito de este joven espectacular que cuenta con un futuro brillante como líder en los  negocios.”

Los 2,500 dólares de la beca JAMAS para Futuros Líderes Hispanos ayuda a estudiantes de origen hispano en lograr llegar a ser líderes del futuro. Para más información, visite la página web de JAMAS.

JAMAS Capital Management, a leading private investment firm, is delighted to announce that Cristian Toledano Gonzalez is the winner of the 2017 Future Hispanic Leaders Scholarship.

Cristian is currently a student at Bryan College in Dayton, TN, where he is majoring in Business with a focus on Human Resources and Information Systems. “It is such an honor knowing my essay was the one chosen amongst hundreds across the nation,” said Cristian, “This is one less financial burden on my parents and me. It’s truly a blessing to be the first recipient of this award.”

Cristian came to the United States when he was five years old and was enrolled in an elementary school where he could not speak or write in English. Being a motivated student from the start, Cristian worked on his own to learn English as quickly as he could, immersing himself in English language books and watching television. By the time he was eight, Christian was translating and speaking on behalf of his parents and other family members. After high school graduation, Cristian raised money to begin college by organizing a soccer tournament.

“We are extremely proud of Christian’s accomplishment. We know he will continue to build on this success well beyond graduation,” said Dr. Daniel B. Gates, Assistant Professor and Program Director at Bryan College. Cristian is currently on track to graduate in May 2017. He will be the first person in his family to attend and graduate from college.

“Cristian represents everything the JAMAS Future Hispanic Leaders Scholarship is about”, said Ben O. Turnage, founder and CEO of JAMAS Capital Management. “He has demonstrated the motivation to excel in all he does, and he has the success to prove it. We at JAMAS are proud to contribute to the success of such an impressive young man, who has a bright future as a leader in business.”

JAMAS Capital Management, a leading private investment firm, is delighted to announce that Mary Eveleen Brown is the winner of the 2017 JAMAS Entrepreneurial Spirit of Mississippi Scholarship. Brown is currently a sophomore at the University of Mississippi, majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications with a minor in Business Administration.

Originally from Brentwood, TN, Brown is involved in the Ole Miss community, serving on the Student Activities Association Executive Council, the Associated Student Body Marketing & Engagement Board, the Student Alumni Council, and on the sponsorship committee for Ole Miss RebelTHON for Children’s Miracle Network.

Mary Eveleen got an early start in entrepreneurship at 12, when she made and sold purses to raise funds for a charity that provides plastic surgery to burn victims. In high school, Brown started an online business making and selling headbands to raise funds to attend camp. Most recently, Mary Eveleen immersed herself in a start-up jewelry business, which was “transformative in my understanding of the business environment of today,” Brown said.

“I discovered that the most crucial question in today’s business environments is ‘Why do we do things this way?’ It encourages people to look at their business from a different point of view.”

“Mary Eveleen has demonstrated the motivation to create and succeed in new businesses while also serving her community,” said Ben O. Turnage, founder and CEO of JAMAS Capital Management. “We at JAMAS are proud to contribute to the success of this impressive young woman, who has a bright future as a pioneering business leader.”

Ken Cyree, dean of the University of Mississippi School of Business Administration said, “We are very proud of Mary Eveleen’s accomplishments so early in her college experience and are confident she will continue to build on this success at Ole Miss and well beyond graduation.

“We are also thrilled that JAMAS Capital Management is funding this important scholarship that supports our Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and our Entrepreneurship major.”

The $2,500 JAMAS Entrepreneurial Spirit of Mississippi Scholarship helps Ole Miss students pursue their education as well as their goals to create successful businesses after graduation. For more information, visit the JAMAS website.
