AHR Supports Student Funding
March 19, 2007
WESTPORT, Conn. - The International Exposition Co. (IEC),
along with co-sponsors the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and
Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration
Institute (ARI), presented the 5th Annual International Air-Conditioning,
Heating, and Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) Innovation Award Scholarship
to Vernon College in Wichita Falls, Texas. Scott McClure, HVAC Instructor at
Vernon College, accepted the award.
“One of our main challenges for the last three years has
been to get the scholarship fund to $10,000 so I could start granting awards to
students,” said McClure after accepting the award. “It has been a struggle. So
when I saw the check amount of $9,373 they presented to me at the AHR Expo, I
was thrilled beyond belief.”
This year’s scholarship award of $9,373 is derived from
Innovation Award entry fees and will be used to benefit local HVACR students at
Vernon College. The award is presented annually to an educational institution
in the geographical area where the AHR Expo is being held.
