New call-to-action

John Sasen Memorial Scholarship

John Sasen was an amazing individual. He was an incredible mentor, an extremely kind soul and a person who brought out the best in everyone that knew him. He was an ambassador for the industry and an “elder statesman” in his own right. He was open to diversity and truly cared about the young women and men that he brought along and tutored patiently. He made us want to be better for the industry, our organizations and ourselves. It is in missing him and all that he stood for that we are committed to carrying on his legacy in the industry that he loved.

“…his story is that of a person who has never stopped dreaming, and who believes that change can only make a person better and stronger. It is the story of someone who is committed to training and education.” –Repertoire
