The Alabama Concrete Industries Association Foundation (ACIF) is committed to the advancement of the state’s greatest asset, its youth.
The Foundation was created in 1993 with a single contribution to a memorial scholarship fund honoring one of the industry’s bright young leaders, David F. Wright, who was killed in a plane crash.
The ACIF provides the funding for scholarships that are awarded annually to college seniors majoring in architecture, engineering, and building sciences at universities in Alabama. Currently, the Foundation awards two $8,000 scholarships each year, and the Sam Reed Memorial Scholarship.
In 2017, the Sam Reed Memorial Scholarship was created to honor and remember Sam, a great leader and past board chairman. Following his untimely death in 2016, the board of directors established the $5,000 scholarship for students enrolled at Auburn University majoring in building science, architecture or engineering.
Recipients will presented checks at the ACIA’s Annual Business Meeting in April.
This scholarship must be turned back into Ms. Smith by Thursday, January 31, 2019 by the end of the school day. You also MUST be receive electric service from Coosa Valley Electric Cooperative.
