A highlight of the conference is the scholarship award luncheon where eight deserving students are presented their scholarship award and given the opportunity to speak to the group about what the scholarship means to them. This is one of the most rewarding programs of the Institute. Our Scholarship Co-Chairmen, Curtis Belden and Bob Turnham interview each student that submitted an application to narrow it down to our eight Engineering/Geological awards ($5,500 over two years) and eight technical school awards ($1,000 each toward technical training). To date, RMCMI has given $758,000 in scholarship awards. We also thank Tom and Pam Durham, Patron Chairs, for their efforts in soliciting donations. Please plan on participating in the silent and live auctions, which help provide proceeds to fund the scholarship and the student travel to the conference. It has become a fun addition to our meeting, and a way to help a deserving student. Please donate an item and make a purchase!
