Trade association adopts technical schools. (Front and Center).
One of those chapters, the Westchester, N.Y., chapter, hosted a reception on March 21 at the Yonkers Educational and Cultural Arts Center in Yonkers, N.Y. The event was a celebration of the collaboration between the Westchester NAOHSM chapter and Saunders High School in Yonkers. The Westchester chapter adopted the school as its student partner, and Saunders High School recently received a $10,000 grant from the National Oil Heat Research Alliance and the New York Oil Heating Association. The funds will be used to upgrade oil heating equipment and supplies within the school's HVAC department.
The Westchester NAOHSM chapter has been actively involved with the Yonkers school and awards annual scholarships to top students. Members of the chapter--several of whom are graduates of the school themselves--devote time and energy to Saunders High School in ways that include their involvement in work/study programs.
According to Garber, at least 25 of the chapters are currently fostering some type of relationship with their local schools. The association also holds technical seminars and last year developed a CD to attract young students into the oil heating industry.
