Bill Reaugh had a passion for AITP/DPMA through his many years of service not only to his chapter but the region and the association as well. He served as a past DPMA Association President and was instrumental in creating the original DPMA Model Curriculum many years ago. A more in-depth article about Bill can be found in the 2006 AITP Information Executive/Nanosecond archives at In Memory of Bill Reaugh.

A sampling of the feedback we received from the recipients: "I want to thank you and the Foundation for Information Technology Education for sponsoring and funding this scholarship for AITP student members. AITP has been an integral part of my success as a student and a leader, both on campus and in my personal life. As one of this year's recipients of the William R. Reaugh Memorial Scholarship, I wish to express my thanks to you and your organization for your generosity. I am honored to receive this prestigious national award. I appreciate your confidence in me, and your willingness to contribute to my future education. As anyone attending college knows, the cost of fees, books and materials, and living expenses are daunting. Receiving this scholarship will help to reduce the financial burdens of pursuing a degree in Information Technology at Fox Valley Technical College. Again, thank you for investing in my future."
