Northeast District OAPSE has always been future-oriented. Our struggle has been to make tomorrow’s world a little better, a little more decent and just. As our society becomes even more complex, the value of knowledge and understanding increases immeasurably. “Knowledge is power”. As we look now to the future, we see a future where dignity is not just a catchword, but a reality for all people. Knowledge is the power needed to break down the artificial barriers – race, gender, age, geographic region, and class – that are used to divide us. Knowledge is the power to help us all realize we really are one family, united.

This is what Northeast District OAPSE has always been about and will continue to be about. We see our scholarship program as a vital component of our effort to build a better life for ourselves.
