How the WTA Foundation Started
Bob Adkisson was President of GVNW Consulting, Inc. and was responsible for overseeing the operations and strategic direction of the company. Bob believed that the youth of today hold the keys to our industry and our communities’ success. He was a graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln where he obtained his Masters Degree in Finance and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration. Bob passed away in August of 2003. In his memory GVNW, WTA, and Bob’s family and friends provided the seed money for the Foundation.
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.
What you can do:
» Encourage all students to strive for top scholastic marks in order to qualify for scholarship awards in future years;
» Make the award program widely known throughout your company;
» Encourage your employees with high school seniors of the current year to apply for scholarships;
» Help develop and support community service projects for students in your community; and
» Support the WTA Foundation, Inc. by making tax deductible contributions.
