Arlee student awarded $1,000 MCA scholarship
HELENA — The Montana Contractors’ Association recently awarded eight Montana students with $1,000 scholarships to continue their education.
A local winner includes George Shick from Arlee.
These scholarships are awarded annually through the MCA’s Associates’ and Concrete divisions to students whose parents or guardians are employed by MCA member companies.
“We at the MCA have a strong commitment to helping Montana students pay for their postsecondary education, whether that includes certificate programs, four-year degree programs, or whatever their calling may be,” said Eric Bechtold, president of the MCA Associates’ Board of Directors. “We are dedicated to building Montana’s workforce.”
Funds to support the scholarships awarded by the Associates’ Division are raised through events such as the MCA Summer Outing, and the MCA’s Concrete Division pledges a portion of funds raised through its training activities to student scholarships.
