As part of SoundPro’s goal of building a better future for the audio, video, and lighting industries, the Jeff Humphrey Technical Scholarship contributes to educating the next generation of AV professionals.

SoundPro (opens in new tab) CEO Joshua Curlett established the annual scholarship in 2010. In 2020, the scholarship was renamed in memory of SoundPro executive vice president, Jeff Humphrey, a talented front of house engineer who also spent more than 20 years with SoundPro. “Jeff was such an advocate for education,” said Curlett. “We are thrilled to continue to honor him through this scholarship, and he’d be proud of the opportunities we’ve given to students interested in pursuing audiovisual degrees. It’s our way to honor Jeff, serve the industry, and help kids pay for school.”
