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.
