LIM Student Wins Underfashion Club Scholarship

LIM College sophomore Elise Cardona has been named as the 2016 recipient of the Underfashion Club’s Mary Krug Memorial Scholarship.

Elise will receive $5,000 towards her college tuition. The Underfashion Club is a not–for–profit, intimate apparel industry organization dedicated to education. Mary Krug was a Vice President and Division Merchandise Manager for Neiman Marcus Stores who trained and educated countless buyers, assistant buyers and vendors throughout the course of her career. Mary passed away in 2013, and in 2015, a group of industry executives established a scholarship for fashion merchandising students in her memory.

Last year, LIM senior Ali Petherbridge became the first-ever Mary Krug Memorial Scholarship recipient.
