The two recipients of the Educational Trust’s first Spring Management Summit Scholarships were among the 70 attendees of Selected’s 2012 Summit which took place April 16-18 in Atlanta, GA. One award recipient, Charlie Bowman, Operations Manager at Tetrick Funeral Home in Elizabethton, TN, took time following the program to thank the Trust for the scholarship.
He commented: “I was honored to have been awarded a Spring Management Summit Scholarship from the Educational Trust to attend this year’s Summit in Atlanta. The sessions were informative and well-presented, affording many practical ideas which will be beneficial to my work and my firm. I would highly recommend everyone apply for the next round of scholarships for the 2013 program.”
The Summit Scholarships were established earlier this year in our continued drive to enrich the professionalism of the independent funeral practitioner through lifelong learning. We congratulate both scholarship winners and we thank all who applied. Two registration scholarships will be made available for the 2013 Summit at the end of this year and any individual currently employed at a Selected firm who is not a majority owner of the firm may apply.
