EVANSVILLE, Ind.--On Aug. 4, Atlas World Group, Inc. awarded $12,000 in scholarship money to three college students who have ties to Atlas and its subsidiaries.
The winners of the Atlas scholarships were Erica Moore, from Newburgh, Ind.; Todd Martin, from New Harmony, Ind.; and Sean Balogh, from Baltimore, Md.

Moore is the daughter of Rebecca Moore, an Atlas Van Lines employee who works in Atlas' Evansville office in fleet registration. The Indiana University student received the Atlas World Group Chairman's Scholarship, which is awarded to any child of a full-time employee working at an Atlas World Group location in the U.S. or Canada. Erica is a senior majoring in international studies and aspires to work overseas for a non-governmental organization or the European Union.

Todd's mother Marcia works in accounts receivable for the company. Todd is a junior at University of Southern Indiana studying business administration and would like to own his own business--specifically, a motorcycle shop.

This is the fourth year for Atlas' scholarship program. To be eligible for the awards, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale, and be enrolled full-time as a junior or senior in an accredited university. The winner is then selected randomly from the pool of applicants.
