Wilmington, DE (November 14th, 2012) - Carlos Castro, Jr., of Wyckoff, New Jersey has received an All-American Scholarship for his outstanding sales achievement with Vector Marketing, the company that sells CUTCO® Cutlery. With more than 40,000 sales representatives, Castro, Jr. placed #8 nationwide for the most recent campaign. He began working with the company as a high school graduate in the summer of 2011.
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.
