The Brian Keating Gratitude Scholarship at World Tea Academy
Brian Keating, Tea Visionary
As reported in World Tea News: “Brian touched our lives and our business in a significant way. He was counted on for his extraordinary knowledge, vision, support and guidance. Brian was committed to making a difference in both the tea community and World Tea Expo and its associated businesses. His knowledge and influence helped direct the course of our conference development, online education and growth of World Tea Expo. Our respect for the man he was and the contribution he made will not end. Brian’s influence throughout our industry will remain steadfast even in his absence.”
He was a generous mentor, consultant and strong voice for tea education in the Specialty Tea Industry who served as an invaluable resource and strategic technical advisor to World Tea Academy. To express our gratitude for all that he contributed to the tea industry, the academy and to us personally, WTA is paying it forward by establishing a scholarship in his name. Each year one person will be chosen to receive free tuition towards earning a WTA certification. He or she will be able to register tuition-free for seven classes.
The 2019 application process is over. We will open up the application process again in late summer of 2020.
