Congratulations to Erik Hillstrom!

Arizona State University MRED (Master's in Real Estate Development) student Erik Hillstrom received the first-ever CenterBuild Scholarship.  Hillstrom was nominated by his academic program and selected by a committee of industry leaders associated with the annual Retail Green/CenterBuild Conference.  His award was presented at the recent meeting in Phoenix.

Hillstrom received his undergraduate degree in Urban Studies and Planning at San Francisco State University.  Before starting the inter-disciplinary graduate degree at ASU, Hillstrom worked in the San Francisco Planning Department. 

A committee of CenterBuild volunteers has been raising funds for this award for several year, and the scholarship will be administered through ICSC's Foundation.
