Professional Development Scholarships - ACA, Southeastern

...the scholarship gave me access to a group of professionals who made me realize that camp is a real profession. The ACA conferences made me realize that what I really wanted to do with my life was not only a possibility, but a true profession that people work their whole lives towards. I always knew I wanted to make a difference, the exposure and professional development that the conferences brought to me allowed me to find the right path to do that. Thank you for the opportunity.
