Construction Management students awarded scholarships
Two Georgia Southern University students have been awarded $2,000 scholarships from the Georgia Utility Contractors Association (GUCA).
Construction Management majors Jesse Bentley and Jeremy Daniel received the scholarships at a recent GUCA meeting in Atlanta. A total of five scholarships were awarded at the meeting.
‘We are proud of Jesse and Jeremy. They represent the future of construction management and development,” said Brian Moore, the chair of the Department of Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology at Georgia Southern.
‘GUCA members play key roles in commercial and residential infrastructure construction throughout the region. We are grateful to GUCA and its members for supporting our most highly motivated students in this way.”
To be eligible for a GUCA scholarship, a student must be a junior or senior who is enrolled on a full-time basis and preparing for a career in the construction field.
Bentley is a junior from Hahira, Ga., and Daniel is a junior from Eatonton, Ga.
GUCA seeks to promote and strengthen a mutual understanding between individuals and companies involved in the construction of public utilities such as communication systems, gas systems and sewer systems.
