ASSE's Permian Basin Chapter Establishes EH&S Scholarship

To help fulfill a need for workplace safety professionals and to aid college students studying occupational safety, health and the environment, the American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) Permian Basin Chapter in Midland, Texas, recently donated $25,000 to the ASSE Foundation toward the establishment of an annual $1,000 scholarship, the "Permian Basin Chapter Endowment."

"The Permian Basin area has a variety of industries with an exceptionally large amount of oil and gas activity. Oil and gas operations pose hazardous environments requiring trained and skilled safety, health and environmental professionals," said ASSE Permian Basin Chapter President Geri Cooley, MS, REM, CSP. "The people of the Permian Basin care about the professionals of tomorrow, and we are prepared to provide any assistance we can to these future leaders. The need for educated and passionate new safety professionals is stronger than ever, since the majority of our experienced professionals are now phasing into retirement."

The scholarship will be available to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in an environmental, health, and safety program within ASSE's Region III (Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas). The first award will be offered to students for the 2009 academic year.

"The ASSE Foundation is always thankful for the continued support of our ASSE Chapters to further the educational opportunities of current and future safety, health and environmental professionals," said ASSE Foundation Chair Stephen M. Bennett, ARM. "ASSE members, chapters, and regions have always been a significant element of our Foundation's success."

ASSE's Region III consists of 3,500 members associated with 15 chapters and eight student sections throughout the three-state region. The mission of Region III is to support the advancement and ethical practices of the safety, health, and environmental profession. For more information on Region III visit http://region3.asse.org.
