AAMA Awards Two 2004 Scholarships

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) awarded scholarships for 2004 to two students who exemplified academic achievement. The scholarships were presented at the AAMA summer meeting by Ray Garries of Jeld-Wen, a former president of AAMA and member of the scholarship advisory committee.

Brian Zhou, son of Genwen Zhou of Millennium Chemicals in Glen Bernie, Md., was named AAMA's Architectural Products Group Scholar. Zhou plans to major in electrical engineering and hopes to attend Cal Tech or the University of Maryland this fall.

The AAMA Residential Products Group Scholarship was awarded to Marie Schmidt, daughter of Carl Schmidt, an engineer at Bristolite Skylights in Santa Ana, Calif. Schmidt plans to attend the University of California at Berkeley and major in mathematics.

"Because of the extraordinary generosity of AAMA members, we were able to award a second scholarship this year, something which we hope will become an annual tradition," said Garries.
