George L. Watters Memorial Scholarship
The George L. Watters Memorial Scholarship was established in 1988. George Watters was an outstanding and well-respected representative of the petroleum marketing industry. Following his death several years ago, the Nebraska Petroleum Marketers Association established this scholarship to properly recall George’s leadership and integrity in the field. The Nebraska Petroleum Marketers, a member of the Energy Marketers of America, seeks to unify petroleum marketers throughout the state to effectively further the common interests of the petroleum marketing industry.
