ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED!
Our April Section Meeting at Miller-Motte Technical College in Madison was very productive for the section. We had 42 present, with a number of them newcomers.
We started off with a pizza dinner and networking. Then we moved into annual scholarship awards. We had two recipients this year. Jordan Hazel of Clarksville was awarded the Roy R Petty Memorial Scholarship of $1000. Jordan Cain of Red Boiling Springs was the recipient of the Holston Gases Special Scholarship for $800. Congratulations Jordan Hazel and Jordan Cain.
We also held officer elections. We retained several positions and still have a few positions to fill for the coming year. There are some photos below from the meeting. Also look for info to appear in the June edition of the Welding Journal.
Scholarship Fundraiser Winner
Daniel Stinson of the Iron Worker's Local in Nashville receives congratulations as the winner of our first rifle giveaway. The rifle was raffled to raise welding scholarships funds to giveaway this year. Thanks to your participation, we were able to giveaway an additional $800 in 2013-2014.
Special thanks to our sponsors, Eddie Teems of Holston Gases, for donating the purchase price of the rifle, and to Antlers and Feathers of Lafayette for giving us such a great deal and giving our winner a great experience in your store.
