I am pleased to announce the inaugural and annual Steve Gentry Memorial Scholarship that will be awarded to up to 2 members of MDBA in good standing who choose to further their beekeeping education by participating in a master beekeeper course. The Board has elected to grant up to $750 to each recipient provided they satisfy the scholarship requirements listed on the application.
Steve was not only one of the founding members of Mt Diablo Beekeepers Association, he was also a constant teacher, mentor, active volunteer within the club, Beekeeper of the Year recipient and owner of Steve’s Bees. For those of us who were lucky enough to call him a friend or a mentor, we were saddened to hear of his passing in January of 2020.
This scholarship grant has been offered to memorialize the many contributions Steve made to MDBA, its members and the honeybees themselves who he truly loved.
