Kansas City-based Block Real Estate Services, LLC and the Lewis White Real Estate Center recently selected students Nick Freeman and Michael Elson as this year’s recipients of the Allen J. Block Scholarship Award.
Freeman and Elson are the second recipients of this scholarship award. The Allen and Gloria Block Family Foundation created the scholarship endowment to support students at the Bloch School of business at the University of Missouri-Kansas City wishing to pursue a real estate career.
The fund awards one or more scholarships every year to prospective recipients who show a commitment to community service, extracurricular activities, a desire to pursue a career in real estate and a GPA of at least 3.0.
“Freeman and Elson have tremendous resumes which include extraordinarily high academic achievements together with substantial community service,” said Kenneth Block, managing principal with Block Real Estate Services. “We are very impressed with their dedication to the real estate industry and are hopeful this scholarship will allow both recipients to pursue their studies in real estate to better prepare them for a career in commercial development and real estate within the Kansas City Metropolitan area.”
