CRYSTAL LAKE, IL -- The Amusement and Music Operators Association's Coin-Op Cares Education and Charitable Foundation reminds industry members that applications for the 2019 Wayne E. Hesch Memorial Scholarship are due by Feb. 13.

AMOA's Coin-Op Cares Education and Charitable Foundation has directed the Wayne E. Hesch Memorial Scholarship for more than three decades. Named in honor of the late Wayne E. Hesch, A.H. Entertainers (Rolling Meadows, IL), the program raises funds for college scholarships. Hesch, a past-president of AMOA, was a pioneer in the postwar coin-op music and amusement industry and played a leading role in strengthening its professional reputation.

Since the memorial scholarship's inception, more than $1.2 million has been awarded to college students, most of whom have a connection to the coin-op industry.

Information on Coin-Op Cares Foundation and the Hesch Scholarship may be requested from Laura Kasch by calling her at (800) 937-2662.
