How your company can get involved.
Consider what an educational scholarship can mean to a student. In some cases, it can be the deciding factor in a student’s decision to attend a school of higher learning. The WTA Foundation is administered by a special committee that devotes a portion of its time every year to evaluate scholarship applications. The committee is constantly impressed with the qualities and skills that the high school senior applicants possess.
