Shelley Pedersen Scholarship


Shelley Pedersen was fiercely passionate about NACE.  She put NACE on the map as an organization that, with a vibrant community, could help professionals grow into their career. She saw potential in individuals who may not have quite seen it in themselves, and she took every opportunity to mentor the next generation. Shelley was an incredible advocate for continuing education and achieved CPCE Emeritus status in 2015. In honor of Shelley, The Foundation of NACE would like to establish a scholarship program in her name to help future professionals obtain their  Certified Professional in Catering and Events (CPCE)

The number and amount of scholarship are directly related to the amount of funds raised. Help us keep Shelley’s memory at the forefront through a program that she championed. We are looking to raise $10,000 to get this scholarship off the ground.

YOU can help us reach our $10,000 goal! Spread the word and consider making a gift yourself. Check whether your employer offers matching gifts. Every dollar goes straight to Shelley’s scholarship fund.
