The Michigan chapter of Women In Defense gave $17,000 in scholarships as part of an event this month to announce the winners of its Horizon Industry Awards and Horizons-Michigan scholarship recipients.

The networking and development organization for those who contribute to the national defense and security professions presented the awards during its third annual black-tie gala this month at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester.

The Horizon Industry Awards are given to individuals who have distinguished themselves and have helped their organizations develop ideas and exceed business goals.

Winners were:

• Jillian Warner, BAE Systems, product development.

• Karen and Michael Arondoski, Bobby Freeman and Jeff Maxwell, I.F. Metalworks, business development.

• Muge Cody, ManTech International, supply chain development.

• Joanne Cavanaugh, Kelli Baranski, Scott Hall and Katie Post, General Dynamics Land Systems’ maneuver collaboration center team, innovation.

The event also recognized Excellence in Leadership honoree Monica Emerson, Navy diversity officer for the U.S. Department of the Navy and assistant secretary of the Navy, manpower and reserve affairs.

Women in Defense also awarded scholarships to two students pursuing careers in defense, Jamie Lee Schaub and Vitora Djokic.

The scholarship program encourages females to pursue careers related to U.S. national security and defense and provides development opportunities to women already working in the fields.
