the debbie smedley scholarship
"The Debbie Smedley Scholarship Fund" was started by some of our friends in honor of Mr. Greg's mom who unexpectedly passed away in April of 2016. Mr. Greg's mom was a huge influence not only in his life but also his classroom. She loved to come and spend time with the kids in his class and contribute whenever she could. We know that if she were alive today, she would want to be a part of our conferences. This memorial scholarship is a way to still make her part of the day! It awards $500 to each conference to cover their registration fee of 12 people. These people are chosen randomly out of all registrants who have fully registered and paid in full. The winner is announced during the conference and registration is reimbursed.
**In the past the entire scholarship of $500 was awarded to one person to cover registration, travel expenses etc... However, since we are fully virtual due to COVID-19, we have decided to split it to award reimbursement of the $40 registration fee among 12 people.
