The Dale Myrand – Quiet Angel  Educational Scholarship Fund

The Society is proud to present The Dale Myrand – Quiet Angel  Educational Scholarship Fund, which was announced at the February 2024 SOC Awards. Jeff and Anna Saplis made a ten-year pledge to support the SOC’s education and to elevate the art and craft of camera operating in honor of their dear friend, Dale Myrand, SOC.

Dale was active on the Awards committee and had a passion for education and ensuring the support of the next generation of camera operators.  His generous soul and spirit will live on through this educational scholarship.

The SOC is humbled and honored to present this scholarship program to the membership.
