ASBPE Educational Foundation Honors Young Leader Scholars

For more than 20 years, the ASBPE Educational Foundation has sponsored the Young Leader Scholarship (YLS) program. For 2024, the Foundation selected three scholarship recipients: Holden Galusha, Zachary Phillips, and Alexander Utano.

The 2024 Young Leader Scholars are under the age of 30, have spent at least two years in B2B media and plan to work in it for a career. As part of the scholarship, they attended ASBPE’s 2024 National Conference, “Evolve or Die. The Next Wave of B2B’s Digital Transformation.”

“We are honored to once again support up-and-coming leaders in B2B media,” says Amy Fischbach, past president of the ASBPE Educational Foundation. “The three YLS recipients for 2024 exemplify the qualities of leadership and a passion for the journalism industry.”
