Jennifer flew to New York City to accept her award from Nicholas Stuller, President & CEO of AdviceIQ and founder of the NFAW. As the winner, Ms. Rufener, 18, will receive full tuition, room and board, and books for four years of college education. Ms. Rufener, a native of Dover, Ohio, is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in architecture and plans to obtain her Masters in order to further specialize in this field. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Dover High School. During high school she served as second chair trumpet player in the school’s symphonic orchestra and traveled to seven different European countries to play. While her parents have been helping to pay for her freshman year and she has saved money from a summer job, Ms. Rufener was cognizant of the fact that she might have to take out student loans to support her long-­‐term academic goals.
