Scholarship Awards Dinner Held

In May, the chapter held its annual scholarship dinner at the Antler's Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs. This event honors winners of the chapterís local Science Fair, Scientific, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) teacher grants, High School scholarships, Enlisted scholarships and STEM scholarships in the region. Col. Joyce Jenkins-Harden, USAF (Ret.), chapter executive vice president, served as master of ceremonies. After dinner, the guest speaker, Dr. Carol Bach, provided an inspirational discussion focused toward all the recipients on the significance of education and how science fairs play an important role in both education and life itself. Highlighting the evening, this year the chapter awarded $64,000 in scholarships to eight graduating high school seniors, $12,500 in scholarships to six enlisted personnel ($2,500 donated from the Lewis Foundation went to fund one), more than $30,000 in teacher grants to eleven high schools, and $2,400 to science fair winners and Teachers of Merit. In addition, the chapter awarded six STEM regional scholarships totaling $30,000. The chapter funded three STEM scholarships and AFCEA International matched these total six scholarships. The chapter was proud to provide more than $138,000 in educational support to the region this year.
