Spotlight on WREAA Scholarship Recipients

Posted By Mandy Kaegy, Wisconsin Real Estate Alumni Association, Inc., Thursday, April 12, 2018

Generous donations made to the alumni association by dedicated alumni and friends make funding possible for scholarships. A total of four scholarships are administered through the WREAA office. In addition to the Dianne M. Orbison Memorial Scholarship Award and the Stephen Malpezzi Tradition and Innovation Scholarship, WREAA was able to provide one $5,000 Scholarship to a graduate student, and two $2,000 scholarships to undergraduate students in 2018. This post highlights the recipients of three of the scholarships administered by WREAA , Jared Shoemaker, Jonathan Korger and Conor Mc Carthy.



Jared Shoemaker (MBA 2019), received the WREAA Graduate Scholarship. Jared earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering and M.S. in Architectural Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2008 and 2010.  After graduating from Penn State, Jared moved to New York City to work for Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc.  He stayed with WJE for seven years and was promoted to Senior Associate during that time.  As a Senior Associate with WJE, Jared led project teams on the design and construction of over 20 projects annually, each with budgets ranging from $10,000 to $5,000,000. Jared looks forward to pursuing his career ambitions starting with an MBA at Wisconsin School of Business’ Graaskamp Center for Real Estate.  He was awarded the Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowship award.  He would like to focus his career on multifamily residential and mixed-used development, including suburban densification and the reuse of existing buildings.



Jonathan Korger was awarded a WREAA Undergraduate Scholarship.  A Wisconsin native, Jonathan wants to use his education to help bring a new wave of economic growth and development to areas outside of Madison. In addition to the Real Estate Club, he is active on campus in the Finance & Investment Society and the Capital Management Club.  Following graduation, Jonathan plans to secure a law degree and pursue a career in credit, incentive and location services for small and large businesses.



WREAA Undergraduate Scholarship recipient Conor Mc Carthy is a direct admit Freshman with Junior standing, after completing an A.A. in Business Administration concurrently with his high school diploma.  Conor hails from Washington State.  He serves on the Executive Board of UW-Madison's Capital Management Club (an investment club), where he is the Recruitment Chair. Conor interned this spring in Financial Services for Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial. 


Congrats to Jared, Jonathan and Conor!
