CINCINNATI, Ohio— Gensuite, cloud-based compliance and management systems software solutions provider, awarded its 2018 Gensuite Scholarship to Kayla Ferdelman, a senior environmental studies major from the University of Cincinnati.
Gensuite first awarded the Gensuite Scholarship with the University of Cincinnati in 2017 as part of a company initiative to give back to young industry leaders in the Cincinnati area—the region where Gensuite started its roots. Gensuite’s objective with this scholarship is to support students in the Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) discipline locally, and build a stronger academic presence in the region.
Kayla was selected based on her impressive resume at such a young age (a resident advisor and treasurer of the Leaders for Environmental Awareness & Protection organization), as well as her article entry covering the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) on sustainability.
“For a company, utilizing IoT for sustainability can prevent their product from polluting the environment at the consumer level. And, among all other benefit, use of this technology could let consumers know that their product has a company behind it that truly cares and takes their commitment for environmental protection to the most impactful level- the education of the public,” reads an excerpt from Kayla’s article, In the Consumers Hands: Using IoT to prevent Hazardous Waste at the Household Level.

The company is extremely proud of Kayla’s achievements thus far and looks forward to seeing her grow her career in environmental studies. Gensuite plans to continue the Gensuite Scholarship with the University of Cincinnati in 2019 and hopes to expand worldwide.
