Randy Carlisle Scholarship Program

It’s hard to believe a few years have come and gone since our great friend and industry leader Randy Carlisle passed away unexpectedly. Most of you know Randy was a quiet man unless he was laughing, then everyone for miles could hear him. He was a friend to everybody, a gentle giant. You always knew where he stood on any issue and he would fiercely defend what was right while never hesitating to admit when he was wrong. Randy also had a passion for helping others. He did so much for so many people and never wanted any credit in return. He was much more comfortable sharing anonymously in their happiness.

For these reasons and many others, GAFSED has decided again this year to partner with Randy’s legacy in offering an educational scholarship to the owners, employees, their children and grand-children to be used to help further their education past high school. We at GAFSED are excited about this opportunity to “Give Back” to those who have made this association the leader in our industry that it is today.

The topic for the 2017 scholarship essay contest is: When it comes to Fire Protection, what are the major differences between states who have adopted NFPA 10 regulations and those who have not? In your opinion, which option is more appropriate?
