The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) doubled the number
of college scholarships given to children of member company employees this year,
awarding four instead of two. The scholarships were awarded during AAMA's summer
meeting that took place in Victoria, British Columbia.
The AAMA scholarship program allows families of employees of AAMA member companies
the opportunity to obtain financial aid for higher education in pursuit of a degree
in an engineering or technical field. It is a one-time award of $2,000, and is
awarded to high school seniors or college students. Applicants are judged according
to grade-point average, college entrance exam scores and a 500-word essay.
Students receiving the Architectural Products Group scholarships were Jerry
Bradley Jr., son of Jerry Bradley Sr. with Arkema Inc. Bradley plans to attend
the University of South Alabama, and Constance Firke, daughter of Debra Firke
with Weather Shield Inc. Firke attends the University of Wisconsin, Platteville.
Students receiving the Residential Products Group scholarships were Matthew
Gaucher, son of Dennis Gaucher with W.R. Grace Co., who plans to attend the University
of Massachusetts, and Simon Gray, son of Selwin Gray of Millennium Chemicals,
who plans to attend the University of Maryland.
