honor of the past chairman of ManaSota-88, Gloria Rains. Through her hard work, long hours and dedication, Gloria built ManaSota-88
into an organization that would not compromise on public health and environmental issues. She believed that any compromise
on these critical issues should be left to the politically minded.
It is the responsibility
of ManaSota-88 to always stand firmly for the the integrity of the environment and for the public's health. The manner in
which Gloria lived her life inspires us to continue with the work of ManaSota-88.
has made an impression that will be felt for generations to come. We plan to continue Gloria’s mission through the establishment
of an education scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded annually to an upper level college student majoring in environmental
health and science and/or environmental law.

dedicated to protecting the health and preservation of the environment.
