Where Our Money Goes
The following scholarship and memorial funds have been established to help NASC make its services and activities affordable for all who want to make use of them. We welcome financial donations earmarked for these funds, and will ensure that your donation is used for the fund you specify.
With your state dues paid, you can register for the state and national conventions, help keep the free one-day and half-day workshops conducted by our fantastic volunteer staff, and help purchase the many certificates and plaques presented at the State Convention each fall.
SUMMER LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP SCHOLARSHIP FUND
NASC offers 50% scholarships to students who need financial assistance to attend the NASC Summer Leadership Workshops. Donations to this fund ensure that students throughout the state who might not otherwise be able to afford Workshop are able to attend.
JERAD MANZER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
This fund honors the late Jerad Manzer, a young man who was very active in state and district NASC activities before dying unexpectedly of heart failure in 2001. Because Jerad was president of NASC District 4, this fund provides need-based scholarships to students in District 4 member schools.
CHARLOTTE SYLVIA MEMORIAL FUND
This fund honors the late Charlotte Sylvia, a long-time educator from Massachusetts who returned to Nebraska each summer for over 30 years to help staff the NASC Summer Leadership Workshops. Charlotte's unique personality and caring touch helped the Volunteer Staff grow closer as a family. Her involvement in student leadership organizations throughout the country helped us continually learn. Accordingly, the Charlotte Sylvia Fund is earmarked for Volunteer Staff recognition and development activities.
