Anne Marie Fearn served as Certified’s chairman for nearly three decades. Her initials, AMF, now stand for a scholarship awards program benefiting Certified’s Advertisers, Merchandisers (display rack locations) and Family (employees/contractors).

The Anne Marie Fearn Memorial Scholarship Awards is the first of its kind in Certified’s 120-year history. The annual program will grant six academic scholarships. It recognizes the entrepreneurial spirit demonstrated by Mrs. Fearn, who passed away on April 19th, 2013 at the age of 89.
