ProfNet Offering Two $500 Scholarships to High School Grads

ProfNet, the Professional Networking Group of Waterbury, will provide two $500 Partners for Success Scholarships to graduating high school students. The scholarships are presented annually in memory of ProfNet members Larry Vitkovsky and Vinnie Banda.

Bruce Brayton, computer specialist and owner of Brayton Associates in Southington, and ProfNet Treasurer and Scholarship Committee member, stated, “The scholarships are open to any graduating high school senior who will be continuing in an accredited course of higher education. Qualifications for the scholarships are not constrained by where applying students live.”

Brayton further explained that applications from high school seniors will be accepted that meet the criteria that the applicant will be continuing their education in an accredited course of higher education. Each application must be accompanied by a minimum 500 word essay on “What higher education will do for my future.” All applications must be postmarked by May 31, 2014.

“The purpose of ProfNet,” explained Brayton, “is to exchange qualified business (QBL) referrals with fellow members. ProfNet was formed 19 years ago in 1995 to present business people and business owners with an opportunity to join a quality organization in their area that would focus its attention on increasing their income, the client and customer base, and their personal contacts to achieve those goals.”

The 43 members of the ProfNet organization are committed to maintaining ethics and standards of the highest order in all business relationships” ProfNet members meet weekly at 7:00 a.m. on Thursdays at the Waterbury Regional Chamber offices at 83 Bank Street, fourth floor.
