For the past several years, Vantage LED has been helping the Mid-South Sign Association (MSSA) with the Steve Metheny Scholarship Foundation.
It provides financial awards to the employees or dependent children of the employees of the MSSA member firms. Above is a picture of some of the 2014 scholarship winners with Steve Metheny.
We donate iPad Minis for a silent auction which has been resulting in thousands raised every year for scholarships. A full scholarship is $1500.
David Bittenbender from our sales team in Georgia has been charge of iPad silent auctions every year at the MSSA annual conference.
He states, “We have been furnishing iPad’s to the MSSA Scholarship Foundation for many years now and the results from the funds raised continue to astound everyone”.

For a program that started humbly in 1997 by Steve Metheny and MSSA, it has grown to award seven hundred and seven scholarships with a total dollar value of an astonishing $1,054,650. In 2014, they gave out 65 scholarships. MSSA is proud to offer more educational scholarships than any other sign organization in the United States.
Here are some of the iPad winners over the years.
Thank you MSSA, and a special thanks to our valued team member David Bittenbender for continuing to be a helping hand every year.
