The chapter fundraising events are conducted with the help of MRA members who volunteer their time and resources. In the past, our Greater St. Louis Chapter awarded a scholarship to a young man named Mark Widmann, who went on to graduate with honors from the Hotel & Restaurant Management Program at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park. He became a successful operator and an MRA member.
Commenting on his scholarship, Widmann noted recently, “I look back on the opportunity MRA provided to me after high school, and I still find it amazing that a group of people would be so generous to a young man they didn’t even know. Being a member of the Missouri Restaurant Association is an easy decision for me, and recruiting fellow members is a natural extension of that. Every restaurant owner should be aware that MRA is still providing scholarship opportunities today – just as it did for me over 40 years ago.”
