The Harold Ennes Scholarship Fund Trust was initiated by Indianapolis Chapter 25 in 1980 in memory of Harold E. Ennes, author of many textbooks for broadcast and broadcast-related communications training and a member of the Indianapolis chapter. Ennes was a member of the Society of Broadcast Engineers' national Certification Committee and made many contributions to the early development of the Certification Program. The Scholarship Trust was transferred to the SBE national organization to administer in 1981.
