Shelburne man receives Mills Scholarship

SHELBURNE Stanton C.(Tony) Hall has received one of nine 2006-2007 Paul S. Mills Scholarships awarded by the Foundation for Financial Service Professionals. The annual scholarship program recognizes individuals who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to ethical business practices, professional education and volunteerism. Tony Hall is a great choice for this honor, said Glenn A. Jarret J.D. , Vermont Chapter FSP president. He embodies the true spirit of this award by giving his best to clients, colleagues and community. We are pleased that the FSP Foundation has recognized his efforts, and hope that this scholarship helps him continue to grow and advance professionally. In the words of the Scholarship Committee, Tony Hall had been active in the local leadership of the Society of FSP, NAIFA and FPA. He uses his love and talent for music to serve his church and his community, including COTS, an organization that assists the homeless, Habitat for Humanity and Vermont Marriage Encounter. In the words of his nominator, Tony Hall personifies the Latin phrase non sibi or not for self. Hall is Trustee Emeritus of Burlington College, a member of the State Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration Continuing Education Planning Committee and an active member of First Congregational Church Burlington. Established in 1982, the program honors the late Paul Mills, CLU, the second executive vice president of the Society. Since its inception, the program has awarded in excess of $200,000 in scholarship funds to more than 300 recipients. The $2,000 Paul S. Mills Scholarships can be used for meeting registration, airfare and lodging for events hosted by FSP, such as Financial Service Forum, September 27-29 in Montreal, Canada; the Arizona Institute, January 13-18, 2008 in Phoenix, AZ; or other approved educational programs.
