Creating Community Scholarship Recipients - 48th Annual Conference

AASECT is excited to announce the two recipients of the 48th Annual Conference Creating Community Scholarships! We look forward to welcoming Jantel Jordan, MA and Martha Juarez to the Annual Conference!

Because of the generosity of our members and supporters, we are excited to offer these two scholarship opportunities for this year's conference.
