Jim Aro Scholarship -Sessions 1-2

Jim Aro dedicated much of his life as a pioneer in the addiction field, helping others recover from alcohol and other addictions while founding the Aro Counseling Centers. Jim Aro served on the Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling (WCPG) Board of Directors from November 2000 until his medical resignation in late 2004. The addictions field lost a great pioneer when Jim passed away on January 19, 2005. The Jim Aro Scholarship was established in 2005 by the WCPG; the best way for us to honor the memory of Jim is to encourage future pioneers working in the problem gambling addiction field.
