"NSPA has been the catalyst to helping us be more effective and efficient in our mission!

NSPA Member Highlights

Nexstar Legacy Foundation

“NSPA has been an excellent source of information for our scholarship program. Some of the best benefits have been networking with and learning from other members of NSPA to avoid reinventing the wheel. The conferences have been a great place to do this as well as the opportunity to send out specific questions to the general membership through the broadcast email service.” - Renée Cardarelle, Executive Director

The Nexstar Legacy Foundation focuses on providing students information on the opportunities of a career in the plumbing, heating/cooling and electrical residential service industries. Our Explore the Trades program is for students ages 16 to 25 and is designed to recruit the next generation of skilled technicians. Our goal is to show students they can be passionate and proud about trade and technical careers. Careers that are not only secure, but independent, hands-on and lucrative. We provide scholarships as well as career tools at our website.

Our Troops to Trades program works closely with veterans to help translate their military skills into technical careers. Along with scholarships, we also provide free training, and assist veterans with job placement. Learn more at

Students, parents, school counselors and representatives, and other members of the public are encouraged to use the tools found on our website and to provide us with additional information on scholarships and schools that work with students going into plumbing, HVAC and electrical careers.
