In memory of Ana Alvarez-Holmberg, a local leader in project management and corporate training, PMI-MN and the Twin Cities chapter of the American Society of Training and Development (ATD-GTC) offer the Ana Alvarez-Holmberg Scholarships.
About Ana Alvarez-Holmberg
Ana, as a project management and training champion and innovator, distinguished herself through her service to both PMI-MN and ATD-GTC. Her untimely passing in September, 2005 at age 46 was the catalyst for members of both professional associations to create a scholarship in her honor.
"Ana’s family in Peru and I appreciate the efforts of PMI and ATD-GTC to honor her with a scholarship. She was highly-dedicated to her professional life and continued learning, and this is a wonderful way to remember her" - Loras Holmberg, Ana’s husband.
"Ama had a tremendous impact on PMI and ASTD through her kindness, honesty, and energy. She was a model of volunteerism through her committement to us; her faith, family and friends; and to the larger community at large." - Mike Wold, PMI-MN Scholarship Institute
