TMA honors Lou Fiore’s lifetime contribution with scholarship in his name

MCLEAN, Va.—The Monitoring Association (TMA) President Morgan Hertel recently announced the establishment of the Louis T. Fiore Electronic Communications Scholarship.

Hertel’s announcement came during the TMA General Business Meeting at the 2022 Annual Meeting on Marco Island, Fla., in October.  

The scholarship honors Fiore’s enduring contribution to the alarm industry and the Alarm Industry Communications Committee (AICC) and is intended to promote careers in electronic communications.

“How do you recognize someone who’s given his heart and soul for more than 30 years to an organization?” Hertel asked when introducing the new scholarship. “Lou has served the alarm industry in many capacities. We wanted to honor his immeasurable contributions in an everlasting manner to make certain he and his work is never forgotten.”

The room rose with a standing ovation as Fiore approached the stage to accept a small token of recognition from Hertel.

“I am honored. As chair of the AICC for 30 years, I worked hard to make certain the committee and its members thrived. The work was very close to my heart. Thank you very much. This is incredible,” Fiore stated in his acceptance comments.

The scholarship is open to anyone studying electrical engineering, specifically electronic communications, or software development related to electronic communications, regardless of financial need. Students at any nationally accredited educational institution, including vocational schools, two-year colleges, or other institutions of higher learning are eligible.

The inaugural scholarship will be presented during the 2023 TMA Annual Meeting, taking place Nov. 4-8 at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua in Maui, Hawaii.
