This year, four scholarships were awarded to some very deserving students. We would like to take a brief moment to thank all of those who have advertised with us, both in the newsletter, and at the Road-E-O or Annual Fall Conference. It is your revenue that helps to give these future solid waste professionals a helping hand in funding their education.

Congratulations to our scholarship recipients!
