The LSP Association Scholarship Fund was the recipient of generous donations through its silent auction. Thank you to all who participated in the LSPA Scholarship Fund’s Silent Auction. We greatly appreciate everyone involved - those who donated items and those who bid on items. This money will go a long way toward providing educational scholarships for students pursuing a course of studies consistent with becoming an LSP or Environmental Professional.
