Fifth Annual James E. Dockter Scholarship Recipients Announced

 PBD Worldwide is proud to announce the recipients of the fifth annual James E. Dockter Scholarship, Peter Alexander and Katie Komisarow.

The James E. Dockter Scholarship program was established in 2008 to help finance higher education for children of PBD employees. Children of PBD employees, with a minimum of three years of service, are eligible to submit an application for the scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship may be used for any year of undergraduate study at an accredited four-year college or university.. The recipients are selected by Scott Dockter, CEO/President, and PBD Worldwide’s Senior Management Team based on academic achievement, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational career goals and recommendations. 

Peter Alexander is the son of Anita Alexander, a PBD Customer Service department employee. Peter is pursuing a Health Science degree at Kennesaw State University. Peter achieved Dean’s List status for the Spring 2012 semester, signifying his qualities of hard work, focused study and diligence. “I’m hoping to finish my degree and direct my love of fitness into a career where I can help people become healthier and teach them how to manage stress and adversity in their lives, through finding a positive outlet.” said Peter.

Katie Komisarow is the daughter of Patrice Komisarow, who works in PBD’s Accounting and Administrative Services department. Katie is a recent graduate of Lambert High School located in Suwanee, GA. Katie was an active member of the Key Club and Math Honors Society and served as the advertising leader for the Flood Community Service. Katie will be pursuing a degree in Prepharmacy at the University of South Carolina. “One night I decided to sit down and Google different medical and science related jobs. As soon as I came across pharmacy, everything began to quickly click in my head. This is what I had been searching for all along.” said Katie.
