Special Thanks

Overseeing the selection process for scholarships, and organizing materials to be submitted for national awards is hard work.  Thank you to Wendy Boggs, Awards & Recognition Committee Chair, and the members of that committee.
 
ACA scholarships would also not be possible without the FUNdraising Committee and everyone that contributed funds, candy/supplies, and/or time to the efforts of that committee.  Thank you.
