The Military Affairs Committee (MAC) of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce was founded more than 30 years ago to facilitate a favorable and mutually rewarding relationship between the Tempe business community and military units here in the Valley. The Tempe Chamber is the first chamber in the Valley to develop a program that rewards outstanding members of the military. For many units, it is their only civilian recognition/award program.

Each month, the committee gathers to honor an outstanding member of the Guard or Reserve who receives an award for his or her service. On Wednesday, November 11, MAC will be presenting scholarships to outstanding students from the ASU ROTC program. Recipients of these scholarships exemplify honor, integrity, hard work and dedication to their education and the United States military. Scholarships will be presented to two outstanding cadets from the ASU Army and ASU Air Force and one Midshipman from ASU Navy ROTC programs.

This will be hosted at Heidi’s Events and Catering, 2095 W. 15th Street from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost to attend is $25 for members of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce or MAC and $35 for the general public. Reservations can be made at www.tempechamber.org or by calling 480.967.7891.
