Western Attire – Put on Your Best Boots & Let's Kick the Dust Up!
Every fall the SME Tucson Section partners with the mining community in sponsoring scholarships awarded to students pursing degrees in mining related fields at the University of Arizona. This event marks the celebration of the recipients being awarded their scholarships as well as the voting in of the upcoming year's SME Tucson officers and appointed chairs. This has become an evening to look forward to in the industry where friends and colleagues new and old just take a load off, enjoy some good food, good company and good times!
Many of tomorrow's most talented mining professionals get their start right here at the University of Arizona. With the cuts in state spending on education and financial aid in addition to the rising cost of tuition; our next generation miners needs us more than ever. Last year, our community joined together to help the SME Tucson Section raise over $50,000 setting yet another national SME section scholarships program record!
To become a sponsor and participate with our community in supporting the future of our mining industry, please go to make donations directly online at SME Tucson Section. Benefits package details are available on our website www.smetucson.org/sponsor.
