We have teamed up with the Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM) to sponsor the Chambers Family Memorial Scholarship as a way to honor Glenn and Jim Chambers – a father and son who enjoyed nature to the fullest.
Glenn was a nationally recognized conservationist who was honored with the William T. Hornady Gold Medal from the Boy Scouts and the Duck Unlimited Distinguished Service Award. Jim was a brilliant student and exceptionally fine musician, having performed as a concert pianist at Carnegie Hall and solo tenor singer in the London Opera House.
In 2019, two scholarships will be awarded:
- $1,000 graduate award
- $500 senior undergraduate award
Scholarship awards will be given in March 2019 at the CFM Convention.
