Re: Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition
Once again, the League of Municipalities is proud to announce the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition for high school Juniors and Seniors planning to continue their education after high school. We are again inviting you to play a major role in this exciting venture.
The purpose of this scholarship is to advance the virtues of elected and volunteer positions in municipal government while raising awareness of municipal government in general.
This scholarship competition has been named in honor of Louis Bay 2nd, Mayor Emeritus of Hawthorne. Louis Bay 2nd actively participated as a League Board Member and Past President for 60 years.
Attached http://www.njslom.org/Louis-Bay2014.doc you will find a promotional kit which will explain your part in promoting this scholarship, how the application process works, how the selection process works, and some suggestions for coordinating your actions with interested community groups.
For deadlines, please see “Suggested Time Frames” in “The Mayor’s Involvement”. Please contact Michael Darcy at the League office (extension 116) if you have any questions on this program. We look forward to receiving an entry from your municipality and raising interest in future municipal leaders.
Very truly yours,
League Past President
Mayor, Buena Vista Township
Chair, Scholarship Committee
