2020 Tina-Marie Sullivan Memorial Scholarship


For Staff of Public Housing Authorities to Attend the Mid-Winter Conference & Exhibition 

 In 2019 the New England Regional Council of NAHRO established the Tina-Marie Sullivan Memorial Scholarship in memory of Tina-Marie Sullivan who was the Executive Director of the Central Falls (RI) H.A.. Ms. Sullivan served NERC for several years as the Vice-President for Professional Development, member of the regional Executive Board and national NAHRO Board of Governors.  Tina was influential in several successful Annual and Mid-Winter Conferences and Professional Development Curriculum.
