Supporting Entomology Students Through Scholarships: Funds Raised Through Silent Auction & Individual Donations

Pi Chi Omega’s philanthropic focus is providing financial support to full time students majoring in urban and industrial pest management. Each year 5 scholarships totaling $11,000 are awarded. This year’s applications are due by March 15th, so if you are a student or if you know a student who could use financial support, please visit the Scholarship page on our website.

To support the Scholarship program into the future, Pi Chi Omega kicked off several fundraisers at the Roll With It social. An individual donation drive is still going on and we’d greatly appreciate contributions. Just follow this link to make a contribution in the amount of your choice!

An online silent auction for an amazing print donated by Tom Myers, All Rite Pest Control, Inc. Tom is a past Pi Chi Omega Board member and astounding photographic artist. The bidding on Tom’s grasshopper print opened at $100, with the goal of raising $500 for the scholarship program. Eight bidders topped each other raising the bid by $20 for a 48-hour period. Dale Baker, of JT Eaton, held the final winning when the auction closed. Dale purchased the print then donated it back to be re-auctioned to continue the fundraising effort. The runner-up from the silent auction was Mike Corbitt, of Veseris, who snapped the print right up. The total raised through the silent auction so far is $600
