Joe Dolejsi Youth Scholarship Fund

$3,250 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 18 months
If you would like to create a personal memorial to Joe Dolejsi, a fund is being created that will provide an annual youth scholarship for a young member 18 years old and under. This has been established to recognize and forever remember Joe's  commitment and many contributions to NAVHDA and the development of the Minnesota Chapter.  Joe was a dedicated leader at the International level as well as the Chapter Level. He also enjoyed interacting with youth and was a firm believer that their involvement would be a cornerstone of the growth of NAVHDA.

At the International level: 

He was a judge for 27 years. 
He judged 1793 Dogs. 
He judged at 218 Chapter Tests. 
He was a Clinic Leader. 
He led 14 handler clinics. 
He was the Director of Testing, 1996. 
He was the Director of Judge Development for 2 years, 1997-1998. 
He was the NAVHDA president for 6 years, 1999-2004. 
He was the Treasurer for 10 years, 2008-2017.

Every year a scholarship will be awarded to a young Chapter member, 18 years and under.  This Scholarship provides a free chapter membership for one year and will permit this person to attend all of the Chapter's training and testing events free of charge.  This would include NA tests, UPT and UT, obedience classes, weekly and weekend training events, and mock tests offered by the Chapter.  Any grounds fees or registration costs associated with the training activities are fully covered.  In all cases, the youth awarded the scholarship will be the individual handling the dog. 

We appreciate any support and donation you can provide to assist in creating this tribute to Joe and his vision for youth involvement.  All monetary donations are fully tax deductible.

Thank you for your contribution,

Rolf Rogers
President, Minnesota Chapter of NAVHDA
