The National Apartment Association Education Institute selected Melissa White, director of marketing and training for Marietta-based GFI Management Services Inc., as the recipient of the first Alexandra Jackiw Leadership Scholarship, which supports leadership training for minority employees working in the apartment industry.

As recipient of the scholarship, White will attend the NAAEI Leadership Experience: Powered by Dale Carnegie course that will be take place from April 30 to May 1 at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore. The scholarship covers tuition and travel to the two-day course, which teaches mid-level managers how to successfully lead, inspire and motivate.

The covers will cover topics such as developing personal leadership, communicating to lead, coaching for performance, delegating and building trust, credibility and respect. These skills are critical for people moving into mid-level management roles in the apartment industry.

As part of the scholarship, White also will have the opportunity to travel and meet with scholarship namesake Alex Jackiw, CAPS, CPM, for an in-person mentoring session. The scholarship is the National Apartment Association’s way of honoring Jackiw for serving as 2013 NAA Chairman of the Board.
