Kevin Jetton Service Scholarship
The Kevin Jetton Service Scholarship, a national scholarship that is awarded annually, supports university
students seeking an education in an accredited degree program related to information technology. Exceptional
service to fellow IT students/professionals plays a major role in the selection process for this scholarship. To
be eligible, an applicant must be an active member of an AITP student chapter.
William R. Reaugh Scholarship

Dave Sanders Memorial Scholarship
The Dave Sanders Memorial Scholarship was established by the Mile High Chapter (Denver) of AITP to honor
the memory of Dave Sanders, a computer lab and business instructor at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado,
who was among those killed on April 20, 1999. Awarded annually, it provides grants of tuition and book aid to
qualified graduating Columbine High School seniors who intend to pursue an IT-related college degree.
Harold M. Pool Recognition Award
The Mile High Chapter of AITP established the Harold M. Pool Recognition Award, previously known as the

founded in 1952 and Harold was an active member until his death in February, 2001.
To be eligible to receive an award, candidates must be national AITP student members. The students
must be either members of a Mile High Chapter-sponsored AITP student chapter, or individual members
enrolled in a Colorado college or university if an official AITP student chapter does not exist at
their school. Each must be nominated by their AITP student chapter advisor or, in the case of
individual members, by a member of the Mile High Chapter.
Sherry Anklam Memorial Award
The Northeastern Wisconsin Chapter of AITP established this award program to honor the memory of Sherry Anklam, a
Chapter Past President who embodied all of the best values that this award is based on. Sherry passed away in
1995 at the early age of 44, but not before leaving her mark on AITP, the Northeastern Chapter of AITP and the
IT profession. She provided a role model for those who knew her with her dedication to excellence in all she pursued
including educational pursuits, ethical standards and a work ethic second to none—and her dedication to the profession
This award, which is presented in the Spring of the year to worthy applicants, is restricted to AITP student
members in good standing who belong to one of the various AITP student chapters sponsored by the Northeastern
Wisconsin professional chapter.
The criteria for selection for this award includes academic achievement, leadership , AITP student
chapter participation and community involvement.
The Chapter board also can/does make awards directly to its student chapters for worthwhile educational projects
that it believes will benefit the student chapter members and embody the ideals that Sherry stood for.
The fund is managed by the Foundation for Information Technology Education with the selection process managed
by the Board of Directors of the Northeastern Wisconsin Chapter of AITP. For more information on this award,

process for the Robert Half Technology/AITP Student Scholarship program. These scholarships, awarded annually, are open to AITP
student members. Selection criteria include demonstrated academic achievement, leadership activities, community service, and
future career interests. The scholarship recipients are announced at the annual AITP National Collegiate Conference.
