Eden Souser, a textile and apparel studies major, recently received a scholarship from the Monroe-Brown Foundation. The scholarship provides Kalamazoo area college students with funding for their studies as well as an internship with a life science or advanced manufacturing firm in Kalamazoo County. Souser completed her internship during the summer of 2014 at Edwards Garment, a Kalamazoo-based uniform and image clothing manufacturer. During her time there she was able to enhance her marketing, merchandising and product development skills. An apron Souser designed will be featured in an upcoming Edwards Garment product collection. After finishing her studies at WMU Eden plans to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and pursue a career in apparel design and product development.
