Berkshire Assoc. for Paralegals and Legal Secretaries Offers Scholarships

I’ve just returned from the AAfPE National Conference in Indianapolis where I was reminded once again of the importance of professional associations to their professions, their members, and their communities. The following example from iBerkshires.com caught my attention:

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Berkshire Association for Paralegals and Legal Secretaries has distributed scholarship applications to guidance offices at the following high schools: Berkshire School, Charles H. McCann Vocational Technical High School, Drury High School, Great Barrington Waldorf High School, Hoosac Valley High School, Lee Middle and High School, Lenox Memorial High School, Miss Hall’s School, Monument Mountain Regional High School, Mount Everett High School, Mount Greylock Regional High School, Pittsfield High School, St. Joseph Central High School, Taconic High School and Wahconah Regional High School.

Students are encouraged to pick up an application at their guidance office. Qualifications include being a graduating senior from a Berkshire County high school with a minimum B average, who is pursuing secondary schooling in paralegal studies, legal secretarial program, political science, criminology, or any legal related field; or any individual interested and qualified to enter an established course for paralegal studies, legal secretarial program, political science, criminology or any legal related field.

Applications must be returned by the deadline of March 25, 2011 to Attention Of: Pamela J. White, Berkshire Association for Paralegals and Legal Secretaries (“BAPLS”) Scholarship Committee c/o Thomas P. McHugh, P.O. Box 36, Williamstown, MA 01267.

I’d offer to help with the judging, but I have a bias relating to Wahconah Regional High School from which I graduated in 1969. I won’t discuss here in which direction the bias leans!
