ACIA recognizes Scholarship Recipients

ACIA Foundation Scholarships

For the past 30 years, the Alabama Concrete Industries Foundation has awarded scholarships to students enrolled in building science, engineering or architecture at our state’s universities. Since 1993, we have awarded 60 scholarships totaling over $300,000. Since 2006, the foundation has given away two $8,000 scholarships annually. The scholarship recipients are both outstanding students.

Fifty-five students applied for the scholarships this year, and the decision was once again a difficult one. However, the two winners selected were both able to attend the meeting and accept their checks, Isaac Hayes and Nate Taylor.

Sam Reed Memorial Scholarship

In 2017, the Sam Reed Memorial Scholarship was created to honor and remember Sam Reed, a great leader and past board chairman. Following his untimely death in 2016, the board of directors established the scholarship for students enrolled at Auburn University majoring in building science, architecture or engineering. This year, we received 34 outstanding applications, and the recipient was Elizabeth Jenkins. Congratulations, Elizabeth!

Ronald Davis Memorial Scholarships

The Ronald Davis Memorial scholarship program was established to assist the children of members who will be continuing their studies at a 2-year or 4-year school or who are currently enrolled at an Alabama college. This year we presented three $3,000 scholarships one $3,500 scholarship. The recipients were Allison Nelson, Amber Powell, Caleigh Carpenter and William Moore. All of these recipients are outstanding students, and we look forward to seeing what their future holds.
