Hello everyone. I hope this newsletter finds everyone staying cool, as summer is upon us. In the last couple of weeks I have had the opportunity of traveling the state to award our recipients their scholarships.

It is always great to meet these great young people and what they have planned for their futures. While I am on the trip, I always ask these questions to them, 1, What do you think of the application, and 2, what can we do to make it easier for you? This is what I heard. They all thought the application was one of the easiest to fill out and that it was very straight forward. Glad to hear this, but in the same token they also told me that we needed to get with the age and be able to submit the application online! This will be discussed at our next scholarship meeting along with any changes we need to make to the application, if any at all.

If you have any questions or anything you feel as members that we need to change on our scholarship form, the committee would love to hear your thoughts. Please contact me at the following information
