John & Elsie Krikorian / Women Achievers Journalism Scholarship
John and Elsie Krikorian were the founders and editors of Business Life Magazine which has provided the Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena and Foothill communities and surrounding areas with local business and economic news for over 25 years. The Krikorians were focused on identifying diversity within the business community and providing ways in which stellar business professionals could be identified and recognized. Their signature Women Achievers Event, launched in 1990, was a pioneering idea for women professionals and has now grown to welcome an annual sell-out crowd with business and mentoring workshops and awards celebrating top women achievers. John’s passing in 2013 and Elsie’s passing in 2015 inspired Business Life Magazine and the community to create a scholarship that would recognize a deserving female student pursuing a career in journalism, marketing, or business management.
