The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) is pleased to announce that Jacquilyn Davis; Assistant Manager, Cinemark USA in Norfolk, Virginia; has been awarded the 2017 Joe Chabot Memorial Expo Scholarship. The 2017 Concession & Hospitality Expo will be held on July 11-14, 2017 at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona.

An Assistant Manager for three years, Davis speaks proudly about guiding and teaching her staff. She says, “I want to learn more in-depth about the Food and beverage Department from experienced members of NAC so I can apply those teachings to my daily routine. With this scholarship,” Davis adds, “I will be able to further my educational goals and it will give me an advantage to reach my career goals with Cinemark.”

The scholarship was founded in the honor and memory of NAC Board member Joe Chabot, of Moore Theatres, who passed away unexpectedly in August 2015. The fund was created by a very generous initial grant from the Moore Family and will continue through donations and proceeds from the NAC Joe Chabot Memorial Silent Auction and the NAC Run/Walk. The auction was also renamed in Joe’s honor.

The Inaugural Joe Chabot Memorial Expo Scholarship was awarded to Patrick Griffin of Five Star Cinemas in 2016. The scholarship package includes full registration to the NAC Annual Convention, three nights’ hotel accommodations and a travel stipend.
