HOUSTON (April 6, 2022) - Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas, a leading North American provider and manufacturer of material handling and innovative automation and fleet solutions, announced today the recipient of their 2022 Cat® Lift Trucks Scholarship Program. This year's $5,000 scholarship winner is Linda Barrientos, a high school senior at Northbrook High School in Houston, Texas.
Linda is an honor roll student with a passion for innovation and design. During high school, she excelled in academic courses, including Spanish and Chemistry, and for four years, she was a member of the Northbrook High School choir, earning a University Interscholastic League (UIL) bronze and silver medal. She shows appreciation to her 9th-grade biology teacher, Ms. Robinson, for supporting her dreams and preparing her for a rewarding career where she can be creative.
Linda was surprised at her high school last week and presented with a check by Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas. As a first-generation college student, she plans to attend the University of Houston where she hopes to pursue a degree in graphic design.
"Students with Linda's ambition give us tremendous hope for the future creators and leaders in our workforce," said John Sneddon, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing at Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas. "We are proud to make the investment each year in higher education and look forward to supporting even more bright futures ahead for Houston-area students."
Giving back to the local Houston community through education is important to Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas. Over the years, the Cat Lift Trucks Scholarship Program has awarded $135,000 in educational assistance to 27 Houston area students.
