Investing in Bridges to a Better Future
The shock of recent events unfolding on the national political stage is a raw and unsettling dynamic that has laid bare the deep divides of a nation at a crossroads. What does the future hold? How do we unite and push forward as a country? How can each of us individually make a difference and be a force for good? Perhaps one impactful answer to this latter question lies hidden in plain sight? It involves committing to a better tomorrow by investing in the education of successor generations that are today preparing to command the future of your business, our industry and country.
The AGC of Minnesota Foundation is a powerful tool that changes lives and provides resources for the necessary continuity of trained and educated leaders in the construction industry. The Foundation annually awards scholarships to applicants seeking financial aid to further construction-related education. The Foundation also provides scholarship grants to students enrolled at select construction educational institutions like Dunwoody College.
AGC of Minnesota Foundation Announcement
I am pleased to announce that recently the ACG of Minnesota Foundation was honored with a $50,000 gift from the Charles McCrossan Family. The gift is in support of the Charles McCrossan Scholarship, which was established in 2017. The family wishes to help support the education of our next generation of leaders in the heavy-civil construction market. The AGC of Minnesota Foundation Board graciously wishes to thank the McCrossan Family for their generous gift.
Dunwoody College and AGC of Minnesota Partnership
I am also pleased to announce the AGC Foundation has again committed to supporting Dunwoody College students by funding six $2,500 scholarships. Two of these awards are expressly designated for persons of color and women. Dunwoody College programs have produced many valued and exceptional students for our industry with many coming to construction careers later in life. We are proud of our long-standing support of Dunwoody College and look forward to exciting future partnership opportunities that build lives, sustain careers and add value to the construction industry.
