I approached the meeting with Focus and Excitement

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. David Root, General Manager at Pierson’s Funeral Service in Calgary, AB, appreciated the Trust scholarship and provided feedback on the opportunity.

“The Trust Scholarship was an honor and a privilege to receive,” said David Root. “Not only was I able to go to the Summit because of it, it made me appreciate the meeting so much more. I’m sure there were a number of excellent candidates, and as I was one of the two selected, that really helped me approach the meeting with focus and excitement.”

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 the recipients 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.
