South Wins!

ACHE holds a scholarship drive during every annual conference. These funds are designated to be used for the grants and scholarships awarded to ACHE members. This year's goal of $3500 was met at the last minute with a rousing round of donations during the final minutes of the last general session. As hands went up with $20 bills, the region giving the most money shifted from Great Plains to West to Mid-Atlantic, South and back to Great Plains. In the end, South would not accept a loss and stepped up to donate the most funds. As Chair, Patti Spaniola was pleased to accept the award on South's behalf. Win-Win for everyone!
