Doug Plack Scholarship Fund
In appreciation of his many years of volunteer assistance to the organization, the Omaha Post has established the Doug Plack Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship has been established in perpetuity, and from this date forward, will provide education and training funds for a member of the Society, or for someone in their family. The goal of the Plack Scholarship is to raise a base of $20,000, from which the annual interest (approximately $2,000) will be given to one student per year. The first recipients of the scholarship were Doug's children, Adam and Whitney, who have now graduated. This scholarship is now open for applications (access the current Doug Plack Scholarship application here).
Applications are due April 1st and will be awarded at the annual Omaha Post Industry Day.
The Doug Plack Scholarship recipient for 2015 was Jacob Quint. Jacob is a sophomore at UNL studying Mechanical Engineering. He's been an engineering week education competition volunteer, Matt Talbot Kitchen food drive organizer, Salvation Army volunteer, volunteered as an out-of-school tutor, volunteer for the ALS walk for cure, and that's just a small sample. Jacob has provided all of this volunteer work while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. Congratulations, Jacob!
