California State University-San Marcos student earns #1 scholarship for sales performance

Summer 2012 #1 Vector Marketing All-American Scholarship Winner, Matt Graves

Wilmington, DE (January 21, 2013) – Matt Graves, of Temecula, California has received the #1 All-American Scholarship for his outstanding sales achievement with Vector Marketing, the company that sells Cutco Cutlery. With more than 40,000 sales representatives, Graves ranked #1, outselling every other full-time student sales representative in the country. This is the second consecutive #1 win for Graves and the 6th time he has won a scholarship.

The Vector Marketing All-American scholarship program salutes those students who have excelled in their roles as sales representatives, while maintaining the demanding life of a college student. Each year, Vector recognizes its top 100 sales representatives, during three separate scholarship competitions.

Graves is a senior at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) studying Kinesiology. He has been working with Vector since July 2008 and is planning a Fall 2013 graduation. Graves has paid his entire college tuition with his income selling Cutco Cutlery.

“Working with Vector has showed me that the harder you work, the bigger the reward. I can’t believe I’m on track to graduate from college debt-free. I could not have asked for a better opportunity as a college student. I’ve gained skills that I’ll apply every day for the rest of my life,” says Graves.
