Able Congratulates Our 2018 Scholarship Recipient!

Able Moving & Storage is proud to announce our scholarship recipient for 2018, Katibeth Blalock of DePaul University in Chicago, IL! Able awards this scholarship annually to a deserving young entrepreneur of today to encourage their passion of owning their own business tomorrow. We are honored to award Ms. Blalock Able’s 2018 Moving Scholarship for her exemplification of hard work, perseverance, and enthusiasm.

At the age of 12, Ms. Blalock’s passion for music combined with her desire to buy her dream violin motivated her to develop a wine glass beading business. With an additional invitation to perform in Ireland, she grew her unique business and raised the funds to do what she loves: play her violin. Her wine glass designs successfully sold in multiple stores throughout Charleston, SC, with the support of her community. As a result of her determination to achieve this goal, she was awarded South Carolina Youth Entrepreneur of the Year (2012).

Ms. Blalock has performed as a solo violinist since she was nine years old and has also played with Carnegie Mellon University and numerous orchestras. Ms. Blalock graduated from Winchester Thurston School this year, and she is currently a student pursuing a double major in psychology and advertising at DePaul University in Chicago, IL.

Growing up, Ms. Blalock worked for several different businesses owned by family and friends. She has expressed that those experiences inspired her to “make a big impact in the small-scale business world.” Ms. Blalock’s desire for independence and entrepreneurship continues as she hopes to run her own business, incorporating her passion for design, in the future.

Able Moving & Storage is thrilled to support Ms. Blalock’s educational and business pursuits by awarding her the Able’s 2018 Moving Scholarship. We look forward to hearing more about Ms. Blalock’s continued success. Able will continue supporting such driven individuals with awarding more scholarships, and we encourage student entrepreneurs to apply for our next scholarship due on April 15, 2019!
