The foundation is a non-profit corporation that promotes the auxiliary services profession through NACAS (National Association of College Auxiliary Services).
Gray is pursuing his goal of expanding his knowledge in auxiliary services. “By receiving this scholarship, I will have the opportunity to attend a NACAS conference which in turn will give me the opportunity to grow professionally and meet other auxiliary professionals,” he said. “I enjoy learning in the class settings but truly believe that having the chance to speak one on one with industry leaders is invaluable.”
Gray plans to attend the NACAS South Conference in 2017.
The Mereese Ladson Diversity Scholarship was established in 2005 in honor of the late Mereese Ladson, controller at Brooklyn College and a president and longtime leader of NACAS. The scholarship is intended to further her work to promote the advancement of diverse, career-minded higher education professionals.
