ROCKFORD, Ill., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Mentor Scout division announced
today that four accomplished professionals have been chosen as the winner and
honorable mentions of the 2012 Mentor of the Year Award.

Samantha Stovall, a Program Manager at UTC Aerospace Systems, has been named
the 2012 Mentor of the Year. She was nominated by three mentees, including a
winning nomination from mentee, Danielle Wilke. Stovall has been with Hamilton
Sundstrand UTC in Rockford, Ill., since 1992. She received the highest
possible ratings on all judging criteria, which included mentorship
activities, support, introduction to network, and end results. Stovall joined

first official mentee, and now Stovall has several mentees.

The three honorable mentions, which were selected from more than 150
nominations, include Blair Selber of HSBC, Judy Novak of The Women's Alliance
