Mila Golovine and Ashley Colón

Ashley Colón, a member of the Class of ’22 in the University of Houston’s Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship, is the first recipient of the MasterWord Endowed Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship Scholarship. The scholarship was announced at the Cyvia and Melvyn Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship Donor Appreciation reception at UH Bauer College of Business. Ludmila (Mila) Golovine, MasterWord founder and president, studied under WCE co-founder William Sherrill, the late business entrepreneurship icon and her mentor. It’s all come full-circle for Mila (a 1995 graduate of the inaugural class of then-UH Center for Entrepreneurship), who did not imagine as a college student that she would have the means to endow a scholarship at her alma mater. Ashley’s first foray into entrepreneurship was at age 12; she started a pop-up bake stand to help cover family expenses when her mom was being treated for breast cancer. The business grew so rapidly that she soon started catering parties and making deliveries. Her class business-plan project is to create an e-commerce company that sells self-defense products geared to women. Pictured are (on left) Mila and (on right) Ashley, giving the UH “Cougar Paw” sign. Ashley is wearing her WCE blazer, showing the logo that Mila’s peers helped design when the school first launched.
