ASSP Foundation Update

We are honored to be making these two contributions to the ASSP Foundation for the Don Jones Scholarship and Lawrence Mauerman Scholarship to end our Chapter year. Both scholarships will now each award $2,000 on an annual basis to our local students supporting the occupation safety and health field.

We want to thank our Golf Tournament Committee and all of our Golf Tournament participants and sponsor partners over the years for making this possible. We look forward to continuing our support of these scholarships, along with other professional development activities.
