Lay a firm foundation…
The SSSAC is magnificent! Huge flat screen TVs, a comfy lounge area, internet connectivity, modern meeting rooms, and a grand covered common area for cookouts, church services and campfires during inclement weather are some of the features of this new facility. It is located directly across from the PSA Staff Dining Hall and will provide shade and cover for staff members while waiting in line for meals. PSA played the leading role in funding this exciting facility. It will be a retreat for staff with all the amenities of their college and home. Just as importantly, we hope it will encourage them to return to Philmont for a second or third or more years on the staff!
To further encourage them to return, the PSA is growing and expanding the Seasonal Staff Scholarship program to reach out to more individuals and provide more generous funding for their education. You can help lay a firm foundation for the scholarship fund with the purchase of a SSSAC scholarship brick.
The brick is similar to patio pavers at the entrance to the SSSAC. It will have your name or that of a group or designated individual literally chiseled in stone. All the proceeds will go to the Seasonal Staff Scholarship fund. Scholarships awarded to individuals are paid directly to their designated educational institution. None of the proceeds will go to the operation of the PSA. Your purchase of a brick will help lay the foundation for retention of seasoned Philstaffers and ultimately build and improve the quality of the Philmont staff.
Your commemorative brick will be mailed to you. Remember, all proceeds from brick purchases go to the PSA Seasonal Staff Scholarship fund.
Deadline for this offer is October 31, 2008.
