Every spring, the United States Sign Council (USSC) awards three scholarships to students furthering their studies at institutions of higher education. To be eligible, they must be employed by a USSC member firm or their parent or guardian must be employed by a member firm. Once they are chosen by the scholarship committee the student may renew their scholarship for three additional years provided they maintain a 3.0 grade point average and is still a full time undergraduate student.
Those chosen to receive the USSC 2012 scholarships are:
* Ms. Kayla Joslin, sponsored by Joslin and Son Signs of Nashville, TN. Currently pursuing a degree in Business Administration and Political Science from Belmont University.
