Paige Redlin graduated from BGSU in 2020 with a BSBA in Finance and International Business. After graduation, she became an MBA student here at the Schmidthorst College of Business. Paige was known for her motivated presence and go-getter attitude. That’s how Paige will be remembered – someone who didn’t leave things up for chance. Hard work was something Paige was no stranger to, and that can be seen with the powerful legacy she left behind. Paige Redlin was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on March 30th, 2021. This diagnosis came as a shock to everyone, but it was a challenge that Paige took with grace and a determined attitude. For almost 3 months, she fought hard with the kind of heart we all wish to have when faced with such adversity. However, after a hard-fought battle, on June 18th, 2021 Paige passed away.
Paige had a passion for inspiring and helping young women. She found her home in the organization Women in Business Leadership (WBL). Over the years, Paige grew it from 20 members to over 140 members. She served as VP of Recruitment and Engagement, President, and Chair of Special Events. If there was one thing Paige was passionate about, it was equity in the workforce and letting every girl out there know that she is capable of anything she can set her mind to. Paige was the perfect example of this, her slogan and motto being “Girl Power.” The Paige Redlin Empowerment Scholarship will benefit students who had similar passions to Paige's.
The goal of this project is to permanently endow the fund at $25,000. If the fund balance does not reach the minimum $25,000, the fund will be converted to a non-endowed fund, for current use, and awarded annually based on the criteria of the fund.
