WVCA - Dinner and Awards Night
What a great turnout last Thursday for our Dinner Meeting and Awards Night! Thank you to everyone that came out and enjoyed our first meeting in 2023. Congratulations to our award recipients listed below.
The President’s Award is the top honor of the evening. It is awarded annually to an individual member for his or her outstanding support and dedication to the construction industry and our Association. Past recipients of this award are a benchmark for future recipients. They are given a personal plaque to keep and a large shovel traveling plaque that highlights all of the past recipients.
The Cornerstone Award is presented annually to a member company for their outstanding contributions to the construction industry and our Association. This is the first time that that Wright, Shagley & Lowery, P.C. has won this award.
The Scholarship Award is for college students that are incoming juniors and seniors. The recipients who earn this scholarship must complete the application and have a minimum 2.50 GPA. To be eligible, the applicant's parent(s) must be currently working for a WVCA membership company.
The Under Construction exhibit, located at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, was recently dismantled in preparation for a new exhibit to take its place. As the exhibit’s title sponsor and the region’s unified coalition for the construction industry, WVCA was proud to partner with the museum to bring unique, hands-on educational opportunities to its visitors.
The exhibit welcomed children of all ages to explore drawing, driving, lifting, welding and assembling much like the Wabash Valley’s electricians, operators, plumbers, architects, bricklayers and the many tradespeople who make up our region.
Member company Earl C. Rodgers had their team members there to help dismantle it, along with the Terre Haute Children’s Museum staff and volunteers. Take a look at the dismantling process in this video
