A Few More Scholarship Application Evaluators Needed
Thank you to those Chapter Advisors who have volunteered to help with the scholarship evaluations. Since we never know how many applications we will receive in a given year, it would be helpful to have several more Advisors agree to add their names to the list of readers in case we have a high volume of submissions. NEHS Chapter Advisors interested in being readers for the scholarship evaluation process are encouraged to send a note of interest to Dave Wendelin, NEHS Director. Essays will be distributed electronically to selected readers in late January of 2020.
