This was a year for testing a new concept – the Roadshow. For now, we’ll focus on annual event with the next one being in Hershey, PA – May 18-21st, 2015. One thing we didn’t want to disrupt was our Scholarship Program. Even without the Awards Banquet in 2014, we wanted to recognize these fine young men.
Therefore, we did it at the chapter level and this year it was easy to visit the PA College of Technology and recognize their 4 winners – YES, 4 winners! Special thanks to the generosity of our co-sponsors we were able to award six (6) $5000.00 awards to students that are furthering their education in the HVAC field of study. Since 1999, OESP has awarded over $250,000.00 in scholarships.
We wish to recognize and congratulate our 2014 Dave Nelsen Scholarship winners:
