CPCA names two scholarship winners


August 6, 2019


The Colorado Pest Control Association (CPCA) named two recipients of its 2019 Bob Hand Scholarship Program.

The 2019 winners are Dylan Blankenship, Arizona State University, and Gabe Murdock, Colorado State University. Both winners receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their undergraduate degree.

“On behalf of CPCA, I would like to congratulate these gentlemen on their academic achievements and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors,” said Roger Lauer, CPCA scholarship chairman.

The Bob Hand Scholarship Program was established by the CPCA in 2007. The program is designed for CPCA members and their children continuing education in college or vocational school programs. Applicants must be an owner, employee, and/or child of an employee, of a pest control business that is current CPCA member for at least two years. More eligibility requirements can be found on the CPCA’s website.

The winners are chosen based on academic record, leadership, participation in community activities, work experience and career objectives/aspirations. The decision is made by the CPCA Scholarship Committee.

If the minimum undergraduate applicants are not met, two scholarships can be awarded for continuing education courses in the structural pest industry.

Applications for the 2020 scholarship will be available on the CPCA website in December and submissions will open in January 2020. Applicants will be able to apply until April 1, 2020. A completed application and a current, official transcript of grades must be postmarked no later than the April 1 deadline. Incomplete applications and/or online transcripts will not be acceptable. All applicants are notified if they selected or not by May 1.
