Tom & I would like to thank everyone from the chapter for another fantastic Student Night. There have been many positive comments coming back from both the UofA, and NAIT students. Please remember that the Student Activities Comittee will be in contact with these students, so if you are in need of an up-and-coming HVAC'er please feel free to contact us and we will be sure to pass this message along to the students.
Annually the local chapter hands out copies of the ASHRAE Pocket Guide to our student members. This pocket sized book has a ton of information within its pages. Every year these books are distributed courtesy of the Don Holte Endowment Fund. As a legacy of his service to our chapter and the ASHRAE Society at large, this fund was set up. Wita Holte has directed our chapter to provide direct benefit to HVAC students from it, as Don was a large supporter of students in our industry.
Congratulatons to Taylor Wight as this year's ASHRAE NAC Scholarship recipient. Taylor is a currently a student at the U of A. Keep up the hard work Taylor, and we look forward to seeing you at more ASHRAE events.
Please make these students feel welcome at upcoming events. Your kind words and friendly faces have helped make these folks feel welcome, and hopefully, will become familiar faces for years to come.
