Following the passing of Ross Young, WSAA's Executive Director from 2003-2011, WSAA would like to announce the Ross Young Scholarship for the WSAA Young Utility Leaders Program.
The Scholarship is a way to ensure the contribution Ross made to WSAA and the broader urban water industry is appropriately remembered. Ross was a thought leader for the national water industry, particularly during the Millennium Drought and also with the advent of the National Water Initiative. He was a passionate supporter of WSAA members and had one of the quickest wits you would find.
WSAA’s Young Utility Leader Personal Development Program is now in its second year with six candidates currently in positions. The Ross Young Scholarship will be attached to the Program and will provide participants with the opportunity to pitch to the WSAA Board on their learnings and how they would invest $5000 for future personal development.
The current Program participants will be the inaugural candidates for the Scholarship.
