Shelley Katz Awarded Rollins MBA Martin Bell Scholarship

September 29, 2010—The Rollins MBA at the Crummer Graduate School of Business announced today that Shelley Katz of Children’s Home Society of Florida is the recipient of this year’s Martin Bell Scholarship — a full scholarship to the Rollins Key Executive MBA program. The Martin Bell Scholarship is awarded annually to a senior nonprofit professional who demonstrates outstanding leadership in their field.

With over 20 years of nonprofit leadership experience, Shelley Katz is currently the vice president of operations at Children’s Home Society of Florida. Katz supports the society’s executive directors in the development, management and delivery of services, and assists with services monitoring and quality improvement. She also provides direction, consultation and support to the directors in fostering relationship with local public and private agencies, boards and volunteers, media, donors and other constituents.

“The scholarship recognizes the value of nonprofits to society and the importance of leadership and professional management and business skills,” said Margaret Linnane, executive director, Rollins Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center. “Given the current economic climate, it is a timely honor and promotes the development of very relevant skills.”

“Shelley Katz has shown exemplary work and has made great developments in the nonprofit community,” said Craig McAllaster, dean, Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business. “We commend her on this achievement, and look forward to her participation in our Key Executive MBA program.”

Katz is currently a board member at the Florida Coalition for Children in Tallahassee, Florida. She received both a bachelor’s of science and master’s of science degree in social work from Arizona State University.

The Martin Bell Scholarship has been awarded to 20 executives from Florida charities. Recent recipients include: Jennifer Rider, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida; José A. Fajardo, president and CEO of WMFE; Bakari Burns, CEO, the Health Care Center for the Homeless Inc.; Gary Cain, president, Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida; Hope Kramer, president & CEO, BETA Center; and Ignacio Esteban, executive director, Florida Community Loan Fund.

The Martin Bell Scholarship was established in 1988 in honor of Dr. Martin L. Bell, former director of the Crummer School Executive MBA program (now known as the Corporate MBA), who was a passionate advocate of business graduates using their skills to benefit charitable organizations.
