  Susan Allen Memorial Travel Scholarship Application

Susan Allen was a long time Girl Scout and Leader in Brook Park and
Berea and co-founded an International Travel Group in 1991. 
Her interest in travelling domestically and internationally developed in
the 1980’s and blossomed with the first international trip with
Senior Girl Scouts in 1994.  She was inspired by this
7 country, 15 day trip, to obtain her MBA at Baldwin-Wallace College
with an emphasis in international business.  She continued to volunteer
with Girl Scouts while earning her MBA.  As a volunteer, she travelled
with groups to Europe, Australia and New Zealand.  Susan passed
away from breast cancer in 2005.  This memorial fund was organized
by family and friends to honor her memory.
