AGC Presents The Best and Brightest of 2012

Written by  Elizabeth Weisman

This year, we commemorate the eighteenth anniversary of the creation of the Chapter Scholarship Program. We have continued to work to develop and improve upon a program to award scholarships to young Texans interested in pursuing a career in the construction field. The scholarship funds are provided from the proceeds of the scholarship gala auctions each year, and are eligible to employees or dependents of employees of our chapter members.

We now provide $4,000 per semester for undergraduate and vocational education with the hope that this amount will help launch these students on a career in construction.


The 2012 program sustained our reputable tradition of selecting only the best and brightest of those interested in pursuing a career in highway-related industries. The selection process is becoming increasingly difficult as the quality of applicats continues to rise. In all, sixteen students were chosen this year to reccive scholarships. Each one represents tremendous academic performance and commitment to pursuing a career in the construction industry


The selection committee did an outstanding job with this year's choices. We wish them a wonderful educational experience and best wishes for their future professional careers. We see each of them as potential future AGC leaders one day.


Finally, I would like to note that these young scholars are given this opportunity exclusively through the proceeds of the Gala Auctions. For those of you who participated in the auctions at the Second Annual AGC of Texas Scholarship Gala, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
