Congratulations to 2023 Congress & Expo Scholarship Winners

First awarded in 2017, the Congress & Expo Scholarship provides attendance to the annual NSC Safety Congress & Expo, including access to all technical sessions, keynote addresses, an expo of more than 1,000 companies and networking events.

2023 recipients are: 

Anslee Boyd: Mississippi State University, Starkville, MS
Major: Agricultural Engineering, Technology, and Business

Anslee is a Junior and expects to graduate in May 2025. She plans to pursue a career in Agriculture Engineering. Her interest in safety started after spending summers at the Mississippi Farm Bureau’s Youth Safety Camp.  When she saw the dangers farmers and other blue-collar workers face every day, it inspired her to learn more about farm safety and how to make their jobs safer.

Why she chose to study safety: 

“Through Farm Bureau and 4-H, I had the opportunity to attend many safety seminars. I was a Youth Safety Camp counselor for two years and during that time I learned how important it is to fight for workplace safety and how much one person can change your life.  I want to know more about a career in safety because I know how dangerous jobs can be without the right safety measures. Being able to use my voice in a way that could one day stop someone from getting hurt seems like a career worth pursuing to me.”

Christopher Lewis: Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Goodwell, Oklahoma
Major: Industrial Technology and Safety

Christopher graduated in May 2023 with a BS in Industrial Technology and Safety and plans to pursue a career in manufacturing or distribution safety. For Christopher, safety is personal. 

Why he chose to study safety: 

“Safety has been my passion since seeing my mom get hurt on a job when I was younger.  She left a career in nursing and went back to school to study Environmental Health and Safety and is now working as an EHS director. Her safety journey inspired me to consider this field and I am excited about my future.”

Tucker Sharp: Murray State University, Murray, Kentucky
Major: Occupation Safety and Health 
Anticipated Graduation Date: May 2026

Although Tucker is a freshman, he has a variety of work experiences that helped inform his passion for safety. He says that one reason he is passionate about safety is the fact that it can be implemented to protect both the worker and the business.

Why he chose to study safety: 

“I personally chose to study safety because I have always wanted and felt the need to make a difference in ensuring workplace safety. My experience working at a plumbing business and being exposed daily to heavy machinery and dangerous tools and equipment, really opened my eyes to the importance of safety in the workplace and of educating people about safety on the job.”
