RALEIGH — A Parkton resident recently received a scholarship from The Education Foundation of the North Carolina Pest Management Association.

Crystal Mabe was one of five people to receive the Past President’s Scholarship, which is awarded to students pursuing post-high school degrees. Mabe is pursuing a degree in physical therapy at Campbell University.

“NCPMA congratulates these students on their accomplishments, and we are happy to be a part of their educational journey,” said Donnie Shelton, NCPMA president. “We are proud to offer the Past President’s Scholarship yearly to help our members and their families reach their educational goals.”

The scholarship was created in 2004 to help encourage and build the next generation of pest management professionals. Scholarships are awarded to owners or employees of NCPMA member companies and/or their family members, including spouses, children and grandchildren. Preference is given to those who demonstrate an interest in pursuing careers in the pest management industry.

NCPMA has awarded nearly $169,000 in scholarships since 2005.
