"Alabama Scholarships for Service, Not Just Grades"

Scholar Shout-Out – Kenya Martin

Kenya Martin is a recent Troy University graduate with a B.S.B.A. in Global Business with a concentration in Risk Management and Insurance. During her time at Troy, she served as the Team Leader for the Smith Scholarship Foundation. She also served on the 2019 Troy University Homecoming Court.

Kenya was involved in several student organizations and honor societies while in college. Last year, SSF afforded her the opportunity to study abroad. On her trip she had the opportunity to travel to London with the Troy Risk Management and Insurance program, where she got a chance to visit Lloyd’s of London which is the world’s leading insurance market. This study abroad opportunity has set her apart from other RMI students competing for internships and jobs. 

After graduation, Kenya accepted a full-time offer with a great company. “In May, I started working at Auto-Owners Insurance Company as an Associate Underwriter in their Tallahassee, FL branch. Due to Covid-19, I will be working from home.” She adds, “I am so thankful the Smith Scholarship Foundation saw potential in me. SSF allowed me to attend college at no cost, and I will forever be grateful for them!”
