The International SPA Association (ISPA) Foundation has awarded Quincy Reynolds the 2019 Mary Tabacchi Scholarship. Reynolds will be honoured onstage during the General Session at the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo at The Venetian in Las Vegas, taking place 11-13 September 2019.

Reynolds is from Friendsville, Texas, and is a senior at the University of Houston who will obtain a degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management in 2020. After graduation, she looks forward to starting a career within the resort and hospitality industry before returning to the academic setting to teach the next generation of hospitality leaders.

“It is truly humbling – and I am honoured – to receive the 2019 Mary Tabacchi Scholarship from the International SPA Association,” said Reynolds. “As I conclude my hospitality education, I know that I am following greatness in the spa industry. I am proud to uphold the legacy of service and advancement that Dr Tabacchi began as we all lead this industry into the future.”

The ISPA Foundation Mary Tabacchi Scholarship was created in 2006 and named in honour of Mary Tabacchi, Ph.D., RD, Associate Professor, Hospitality Facilities and Operations at Cornell University. Dr Tabacchi is a beloved spa industry veteran and pioneer in spa education.

Reynolds will be awarded US$5,000 to help counterbalance her educational costs. In addition, she will receive a travel stipend and hotel accommodations to attend the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo, a one-year ISPA student membership, and will be assigned a one-year mentor to help navigate her career aspirations.

“Each year, it is always exciting to see the passion our applicants have as they enter the spa industry,” said ISPA Foundation chair Frank Pitsikalis. “Quincy is an exceptional example of a dedicated student who will use her knowledge and skills to continue the growth in our industry. I look forward to presenting her the Mary Tabacchi Scholarship in September.”
