Our Outstanding Committees – Diversity & Multi-Cultural Initiatives

Introducing the Our Outstanding Committees series. Throughout the next 12 weeks you will be introduced to each of RMASFAA’s 12 committees, the committee members and find out all that they accomplished this year. This is week 6 of the series.

I would like to send out a BIG thank-you to my DMCI Committee members who have been very instrumental in helping select scholarship recipients for the Summer Institute 2015 and the RMASFAA Conference 2015.  We had 22 worthy applicants which made the decision a difficult one.  Our number of applicants have been increasing each year.

Last year we were able to make 3 scholarship awards, this year we were able to make 4 awards . . . that’s a Wahoo for our RMASFAA membership!  Four awards may not seem like a lot, but to the recipient’s, it means a world of difference (if you don’t believe me, just check out the blogs for the ones who attended Summer Institute)!

Let’s get the word out to apply for the scholarship next year . . . let’s surpass this year’s numbers . . . who knows, we may be able to increase our scholarship recipient awards if our numbers keep growing!
