Last year APRO introduced a new method of contributing to the education of young adults by way of The Society For Tomorrow. The Society For Tomorrow is a group of APRO donors who have committed to the long-term success of providing much needed college scholarships. With the creation of the Society For Tomorrow the APRO Education Foundation takes the next leap forward unifying an industry under one purpose of a secure and stable funding source for scholarships for years to come. For almost a decade, APRO’s Education Scholarship Foundation has helped 226 students granting more than $525,000. Last year, APRO members and state associations donated $127,000 to 65 students. APRO is thrilled to have scholarship recipient and Texas A&M University’s Liz Lytton at this year’s Fuse convention on Galveston Island next week. She is a business major and will speak during Fuse 2017’s General Session on Wednesday, May 10th. We would like to thank all of our 2016 contributors for investing in a brighter future and already making The Society For Tomorrow a success. Click here to donate.
