The Christina Collins Educational Scholarship Fund
The Christina Collins Educational Scholarship Fund was established in loving memory of Christina Collins by the Board of Directors of the National Amtelco Equipment Owners. Christina owned and operated a telemessaging bureau prior to joining Amtelco as a TAS consultant. She assisted several EVE owners with the schematics and design of their offices. Her commitment to this industry was demonstrated by freely sharing her expertise. Christina was a highly respected individual with great integrity and a strong sense of loyalty to the NAEO membership. As she was also a great advocate of education, the NAEO Board has established this annual scholarship award in her honor.
The scholarship will be bestowed on a worthy employee from a NAEO member’s office for the sole purpose of attending the annual NAEO conference or any other seminar or training sponsored by NAEO (registration fee, up to three nights lodging and up to $20 per diem for meals) within 18 months from the date awarded.
This scholarship is available to all, regardless of financial need.
