BURNETT SCHOLARSHIPS. GPCA also announced that six talented recipients will receive a scholarship from the Georgia Pest Control Association scholarship fund. The students are children of GPCA members representing pest control companies throughout Georgia.
In 1986, GPCA honored Glenn Burnett by establishing a member scholarship in his name. Mr. Burnett served as Executive Director for GPCA for almost 20 years. Since the inception, GPCA has awarded $117,000 to our member’s children
Totally funded by a share of the proceeds from the annual charity golf tournament, the scholarship has grown in recent years. The students will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. All are entering freshmen.
