EMPLOYERS®, NFIB Honor Nevada Student Entrepreneur With Young Entrepreneur Award

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Young Entrepreneur Foundation recently honored Carson City’s Morgan McEwan as the Nevada recipient of the 10th annual NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards, a scholarship program designed to reward and encourage entrepreneurial talents among high school students. McEwan plans to attend Boise State University and received a $1,000 scholarship, which was funded in Nevada by Reno-based EMPLOYERS®, a specialty workers’ compensation provider focused on meeting the needs of America’s small businesses.

The NFIB’s Young Entrepreneur Awards (YEA) program was established to raise awareness among the nation's youth about the critical role that private enterprise and entrepreneurship play in the building of America. Since 2003, the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation has awarded 2,300 scholarships to graduating high school seniors totaling more than $2.5 million. More than 500 students nationwide applied for a YEA scholarship this year.

“Small businesses are the innovators and job creators in our economy, and EMPLOYERS is committed to supporting student entrepreneurs like Morgan McEwan as they pursue their higher education,” said Ann Nelson, executive vice president, corporate and public affairs, EMPLOYERS. “It is gratifying to see so many highly motivated students in Nevada and across the country who represent the next generation of entrepreneurs and small business owners. We are pleased to join the NFIB in honoring Morgan and are confident she will achieve her goals in college and beyond.”

Aspiring Orthodontist Runs Dance and Tumbling Business

McEwan was honored by the NFIB and EMPLOYERS based on her strong academic record and her successful business teaching dance and tumbling, an endeavor she plans to continue while pursuing a degree in Biology (pre-dental) at Boise State University. Hailing from a family of small business owners, McEwan’s long-term career goal is to start her own orthodontics practice. To get a jumpstart on an orthodontics career, this summer McEwan will shadow a local orthodontist with whom she also worked to facilitate the donation of braces to a low income student. As an honors student in the top 10 percent of her graduating class, she also served as varsity cheerleading captain for the past three years.
