Scholarships,BEASURVEYOR, where to start?
It’s that time of year again! Here at the North Carolina Society of Surveyors Education foundation, we are all excited as the March 15, 2012 Scholarship priority deadline has come and gone. This is the season where all the planning and hard work starts to pay off. It’s the moment where we get to look toward the future. I, for one, can tell you that being a part the NCSS Education Foundation Scholarship committee is special! I get an amazing front row seat to hear directly from the next generation of North Carolina Surveyors, and to help them in their scholastic pursuits. The stories they share are nothing short of inspirational, and the excitement they bring is contagious. So it’s safe to say, that I am really looking forward to our NCSS Education Foundation board meeting this month at Central Piedmont Community College!
I love this quote by Wayne Gretzky who said “You will always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” With that in mind, it’s Ok if you missed the deadline this year, just go ahead and start working toward next year. It’s super simple! First, go to www.NCSSEducationFoundation.com look on the left where it says “online application Form”. Fill in the boxes and click submit, then you’ll have already completed step one! Also, we are always available for questions and would love to hear from you! You can contact the NCSS Education Foundation by going to the website above and clicking on the “contact us” tab. Also the www.BeaSurveyor.com site is evolving daily, and if you haven’t been by to check it out, you need not waste another minute. There is so much information available right at your finger tips. You can find Continuing Education classes, contact the North Carolina License Board, and find links to Community Colleges and Universities nationwide, and so much more. It is really a wonderful resource. It’s also a great place to advertise (just check the search engine rankings). I mean what’s better than knowing your advertising dollars are flowing right back into helping maintain and promote the future of Land Surveying in North Carolina.
I want to also send out a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who stopped by and saw us at the North Carolina Society of Surveyors Convention; you are truly what makes the profession of surveying so great in North Carolina! And don’t forget that our 2011/2012 Gun Fundraiser is still underway, tickets are going fast, so make sure you’ve got yours. Tickets are $20 each / or 5 for $80 and as soon as there gone… we draw!
