USGNN Original StoryAAMA Awards Its Annual Scholarships

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) gave away some money today, and you could tell by the faces on the AAMA staff that this was one of the most enjoyable things they got to do today. The association this morning awarded four $2,000 scholarships to children of employees at AAMA-member companies who plan technical careers, hopefully in an architectural manufacturing industry. Applicants are judged by an independent evaluation company against the criteria AAMA developed. The scholarships were presented during AAMA's Opening General Session this morning at the Hotel Hershey in Pennsylvania. Winners were:

  • Bethany Juedes, a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin, whose father works for Wausau Metals;
  • Taylor Hemmings, who will be attending the University of Florida. His father, Ivar, is vice president of Glazing Consultants International in West Palm Beach, Fla.;
  • Felipe Londono, an incoming freshman at Syracuse University. His father, Sergio, is a structural engineer at Thorton Tomasetti Group in Newark, N.J.; and
  • Christopher Semlke, an incoming freshman at the University of Akron, whose father, Michael, is with GED of Twinsburg, Ohio.
