PIQUA — Jerry L. Sowers and Brian A. Sowers, funeral directors with Melcher-Sowers Funeral Home in Piqua, have recently qualified for recertificationas certified funeral service practitioner by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice.

Since its 1976 founding, the academy has had as its goals: 1) to recognize those practitioners who have voluntarily entered into a program of personal and professional growth, 2) to raise and improve the standards of funeral service and 3) to encourage practitioners to make continuing education a life-long process in their own self-interest, the interest of the families they serve and the community in which they serve.

To initially receive this award, the practitioner must complete a 180-hour program of continuing education activities and events. In addition, the practitioner is required to accumulate 20 hours per year to recertify.
