Next Month is McCusker Month at CSEA!
by Drew Stoner
    February is McCusker month here at CSEA.  The 2023 McCusker Scholarship Application will be available for download on our website,, Thursday, February 1st, 2023.  NOTE WELL - Complete applications must be received by CSEA no later than April 28th.  This is a hard deadline.  Completed applications along with all accompanying materials must be received before 4:30PM on April 28th. Incomplete applications will not be considered. 
    The Chapters, Councils and especially the individuals who gave from their hearts as donors to our McCusker Scholarship Fund have allowed us to once again help our young adults and their families.  Coming out of the really restrictive time of COVID last July, we handed out 60 individual $1,000.00 scholarships to the children and grandchildren of CSEA members.
    This year celebrates the 62nd anniversary of our McCusker Scholarship program.  The Trustees and I, and especially our recipients, appreciate the effort made by everyone over the years, to provide the funds to help further the education of our deserving students.  At our last Convention, we ‘PASSED THE HAT’ thru the audience.  Our goal was to raise a scholarship ($1,000) and we came close with $854.  The highlight was while we were in the foyer, counting out your donations.  One of the keynote speakers, Rep. John Larson, walked past and as we said “Hi” he asked what we were doing.  Upon being told about our scholarship program, he promptly donated $50.00.  Thank you, Rep. Larson. 
    Remember, you don’t have to wait for McCusker month in February, or for the last minute, when applications to start rolling in, to make a contribution.  We cut off the annual donations in early June so that we know how much will be available for the awards.  We will always be pleased to accept your donation at any time.  Be sure to mail your check:
