We love hearing from our past scholarship recipients about how the FRSA Educational & Research Foundation scholarship has impacted their lives:
"I was a scholarship recipient for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. I wanted to reach out to FRSA and thank them for all the support throughout my college career and wanted to let everyone know that I am now working as a claims adjuster for Olympus Insurance and handling their roofing claims. I never expected to get into the insurance field but once I started interning in the homeowner's unit, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I owe a large amount of my success in this field thus far, to the influences and the support of the FRSA." - Elizabeth Wieland
"First and foremost, it is such a great honor to be involved with an organization that places such a priority on the roofing industry's future. With two scholarships from the Educational and Research Foundation, I have been able to meet and excel in my academic career and goals.” -Taylor Kennedy
"The FRSA Educational and Research Foundation’s acceptance of all ages made it possible for me to attend Mary Baldwin College at 14 years old. The generosity and support of the FRSA Educational Foundation has helped me to grow in immeasurable ways as a student at Mary Baldwin College." - Allie Brown
