2020 ASPE CH 19 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD RESULTS
Every year our American Society of Professional Estimators Metro St. Louis Chapter 19 advertises to students in colleges and universities studying in construction related programs to apply for a $1,000.00 scholarship. This year we had some absolutely outstanding applicants.
Thanks to the generosity of several construction general contractor and subcontractor companies who donated money or objects for our silent auction and for the wonderful attendance at our 2nd annual Trivia Night on March 7th, our Metro St. Louis Metro Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE) is able to award not one, not two, not three, not four, but five scholarships this year!
The highest scoring applicant was Lydia Juengling who attends Kansas University in the school of architecture. She will be awarded a check for the $1,000.00 scholarship we typically award.
As the Trivia Night was so successful in raising funds for our scholarship, we are happy to award $500.00 to each of the next four highest scoring applicants. They are Nicole Martindale (Iowa State), Benjamin Steger (University of Missouri – Columbia), Nicholas Raush (Drury University), and Anna Schwartz (University of Missouri – Columbia).
We wish all who applied great success in their future endeavors. They are each perfect examples of the people who are needed for the future of our industry.
We hope to hold our scholarship fundraising Trivia Night next March once again. Check our website www.aspe19stlouis.org early next year for the announcement and join in the fun.
