Pat Seger QA Scholarship
FRID QA Scholarship
Pat Seger was a child of deaf parents, a nationally certified interpreter and a long-time employee of St. Petersburg Junior college. He certainly could have rested on his laurels; instead, he was an active member of FRID, regularly taught sign language classes and served as a QA Regional Chairperson for several years. He believed in the power of positive encouragement and his cheerful presence on an evaluating team was a calming influence for many "fledgling" interpreters. Pat died at the age of 29 and FRID has established a scholarship in his name to defer the cost for applicants. If you would like to apply for this scholarship, please fill out the Pat Seger QA Scholarship application and return it to the address listed on the application.
