The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) reported on the passing of former SC&RA Vice President of Transportation Doug Ball. Now, SC&RA announced the creation of the Doug Ball Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship will be administered through the SC&R Foundation.

“After several exchanges with a number of Board and other SC&RA members, as well as Doug’s widow, Janet, SC&RA will fund an initial contribution to honour Doug’s memory and industry contributions,” said Association CEO Joel Dandrea. “Doug placed great value on people during his time here, and while serving his country in Vietnam and at the National Drug Intelligence Center. We hope this memorial scholarship will continue to carry on Doug’s optimism and positively impact others’ lives.”


Those wishing to make contributions to the Douglas A. Ball Memorial Scholarship can do so by visiting and selecting the tribute option on the donation form. Contributions by check can be made out to SC&RF with “Doug Ball” in the memo line, and mailed to SC&RF, 5870 Trinity Parkway, Suite 200, Centreville, VA 20120.
