Dear Members,
As the school year winds down, many of us have been celebrating graduations of our families and friends. I too took part in such a celebration as my father achieved his PhD from Temple's Fox School of Business (congrats, Dad!). In this issue of EA Extra, we get to celebrate the achievements of the four students who were awarded scholarships through the EAP Educational Foundation (see below).

Wishing everyone a safe Memorial Day weekend while we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms here in the United States of America.
