Temple University Honors Top Tourism, Hospitality Students

The answer to the question, "Where will the next generation of travel industry leaders come from?" was answered at the annual awards presentation for top students at Temple University's School of Tourism and Hospitality Management. One after another, outstanding students were honored for their achievements in academics, volunteerism and successful internships in various segments of the travel and tourism industry.

One such outstanding student was Tara Miller, a junior at the School of Tourism, whose dream is to work in a tourist office helping travel agents and consumers. Miller was the recipient of the Joel and Lenore Abels Scholarship Award which will help her finish her senior year at the University. She certainly doesn't need help with her grades as her grade point average was 3.9. At home she's involved in operations and customer service at a AAA Three-Diamond Resort. In addition to the Abels Scholarship Fund, Miller has received commendations from Temple University, the Pa Dutch Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the National Tour Association.

"Supporting scholarships like that awarded to Tara Miller," said Travel Matters Inc's CEO Bill McCue , "is the best way agents and suppliers can give back to the industry that has given us so much." For more information about the Abels Scholarship Fund, please visit

a junior at the Temple University School of Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM), is this year's recipient  of  the  Joel  and  Lenore  Abels  Scholarship Award. With Tara Miller are Scholarship Fund Team Members (l.-r.) Bill McCue, CEO, Travel Matters Inc.; Sue Shapiro - President, Shapiro Travel Resources; and Nicholas Rago, CEO, Consultants to Management.
