The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) has awarded its first $5,000 Massage Therapy Student Scholarship to Tamra Gallo of Illinois. Tamra is a recent graduate of the massage therapy program at Elgin Community College and received the scholarship because of the quality and content of the essay she submitted for the award.
AMTA congratulates Tamra and the Elgin Community College for their commitment to quality massage therapy education and practice. She was presented with her scholarship check by AMTA Executive Director Bill Brown today in the company of her teachers.
AMTA will open the entry period for its next $5,000 student scholarship at its national convention in Fort Worth, Texas between September 25 and 28. These scholarships are intended to reward massage therapy students who demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the massage therapy profession.
