What’s Greater Than the Sum of Our [DHL@SHA] Classes??

The Developing History Leaders @ SHA experience, of course!! And in order to help make the experience available to history professionals who need additional support, the Denny O’Toole Scholarship was started by the SHA Alumni Committee a few years ago.  To date, this scholarship has sent 3 folks to DHL@SHA who might not have been able to attend otherwise. A $3,000 value, this scholarship and experience WILL make a huge difference in the recipient’s career.  

This year, to make the fundraising more interesting, a friendly class competition was started and our esteemed chair, Jamie Glavic, just sent out the latest standings with a surprising twist!

1996: $100                                                           2009: $295

2004: $230                                                           2010: $270

2006: $20                                                             2011: $410

2007: $200                                                           2012: $675
