    Thank you to Mr. Tom Christman for his unparalleled generosity to the Chapter.  During the November 2019 meeting, he made a donation of $100,000 to create a new scholarship in honor of Mr. Shay Massey and his recent recognition as a Top 5 Fire Protection Engineer Under 35 in the world by SFPE.  We will be working with Tom and Shay to formalize a name for the scholarship.  As noted previously, Tom is also the 2019 recipient of the John L. Bryant, Mentor-of-the-Year Award.  These awards, our member's continued generosity and dedication to the future of fire protection are proof of the excellence this Chapter represents.

    Thank you all for everything you do to make TVSFPE a success!
