Pi Chi Omega gratefully announces the generous contribution of $6,590 by Copesan Services, Inc. to the Dr. Austin Frishman Scholarship Fund on March 19, 2018, bringing this fund-raising effort to over $29,000 in total contributions.  The contribution was presented to Pi Chi Omega at the NPMA Legislative Day.

The Copesan network of local service providers has been raising funds for seventeen years in support of Pi Chi Omega and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Foundation for research through their annual Copesan Charity Raffle. “Supporting the industry and its growth through research and education is important to the Copesan family. We have so many generous team members in our network who value the efforts of these organizations,” shared Deni Naumann, Copesan Services, Inc., President. “And, we are especially excited to earmark this year’s Pi Chi Omega donation to the Dr. Austin Frishman Scholarship Fund. Dr. Frishman had a profound impact on our network in the early years, playing a key role in the development of our training platform and the protocols that provide the foundation for our quality service delivered by local experts.”

“Copesan’s on-going and very generous gifts since 2001 have helped Pi Chi Omega to build a very strong cache of funds restricted solely to awarding $9,000 in scholarships annually to undergraduate or graduate students pursuing degrees in urban and industrial pest management,” shared Dale Baker, Pi Chi Omega President. “And in celebration of their own 60th Birthday, Copesan included an additional $2,000 in Dr. Frishman’s name! Happy Birthday, Copesan!”
