NYALGRO, New York Association of Local Government Records Officers, is a non-profit organization formed to provide a network to all who are responsible for records upkeep and information management for local governments, such as, towns, counties, cooperative extensions, cities, fire districts, school districts, villages and BOCES. NYALGRO is a proven advisory network for the development of sound records and information management programs.
This annual scholarship was established in honor of Cheryl Steinbach who was the Town Clerk and RMO for the Town of Chautauqua, and past Treasurer and NYALGRO board member. Cheryl's committment and dedication to records management issues provided a leadership example for all public servants, not just those involved in records management. NYALGRO will award at least two (2) scholarships, not to exceed $500.00 per award, toward the total cost of school registration and hotel accommodations (does not include travel expenses).

IN SEARCH OF WORTHY NOMINEES FOR THE FOLLOWING AWARDS:
WHEELER B. MELIUS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN RECORDS MANAGEMENT
This award is given to a NYALGRO member who demonstrates outstanding service to his/her local government and New York's records management community.
The award is named after a clerk who worked in the Albany County Clerk's Office in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Wheeler B. Melius gained his notoriety when on February 10, 1880 he was the first to reach the burning Albany City Hall which housed an immense quantity of public archives and legal records. Melius, once on site, began to pass precious volumes of land records through a narrow window to volunteers outside. Single-handedly, Melius passed 700 volumes - nearly six tons of charred and often soaking, outsized books - out of the building.
