ESC Membership Benefit - Scholarship Program

Contributed by Star Conrad, Director of Operations, Evergreen Safety Council 
The Evergreen Safety Council Board of Directors is proud to once again present the Monty C. Lish and Stanley O. McNaughton Scholarship for Safety and Health Careers. We offer these $1,000 scholarships in order to encourage more college students to enter safety and health professions.

The Evergreen Safety Council scholarship program is intended for member company employees and their families. The brochure and application are available to all interested employees of an ESC member company and their families. All applications must be returned by February 15, 2012.

At the Council, we feel strongly that safety and health is a rewarding career worth pursuing, one that benefits not only our community, but society as a whole. This scholarship is designed to create an opportunity that directly benefits the scholarship recipients, while promoting the field of safety and health as a career option.

Students who have received a Health and Safety Careers scholarship in the past have had a wide range of scholastic and career goals. Two students received scholarships for the 2011-2012 academic year:

Mary Fantazia hopes to pursue a career as an industrial nurse. Her goal is to “be able to assess a work environment and identify potential health and safety problems [and] conduct company safety training programs.”

Morgan Hofman is attending the Oregon Institute of Technology as a pre-radiology major.
