H & H Specialties Continues Student Conference Scholarships

Six student members of USITT will have their registration fees paid for the Toronto 2005 Annual Conference & Stage Expo thanks to the continuing, generous support of H & H Specialties Inc.

The California manufacturer of stage tracks, stage rigging, and more has been a Contributing Member of the Institute for more than 20 years and has been a long time associate of the Institute. Due to their abiding interest in the growth and health of the theatrical industry as well as their understanding of how the mission of the Institute is vital to its future, H & H Specialties initiated this USITT student conference scholarship program in 2000. This program gives support to student members who have shown a continuing commitment to USITT.

A random drawing will choose six lucky student recipients who have registered to attend the 45th Annual Conference & Stage Expo before the Very Early registration deadline of December 2, 2004. They will have their conference fees returned, thanks to H & H; the only qualification is that winners must have been members of USITT for at least a year.

USITT greatly appreciates the significant financial contribution H & H has made over the past several years. This is the third year that those contributions will be used as direct support for student conference attendance, an important part of the organization's educational mission.

Elynmarie Kazle, Vice-President for Membership & Development, noted that Mary Louise Higgins, President of H & H Specialties; Reid Neslage, H & H Vice President; and the entire company have been leaders in the continuing effort to develop programs which support USITT's educational mission to promote the knowledge and advancement of our members.

H & H has made it extremely easy to take advantage of this special opportunity; all students have to do is register before the early deadline, and they will be considered. Winners will be notified in late December.
