Scholarship Winners Announced!!

Congratulations to Jessica Denton!  Jessica is the recipient of the Pellissippi State Associated Construction Women Scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year.  With support from this scholarship, she will earn her Associate's in Interior Design from Pellissippi State.  That degree will propel her toward another goal of earning a bachelor's degree from ETSU and becoming an Interior Architect.    The ladies of ACW applaud Jessica and are excited for what the future holds for her.

Lila Fisher, a senior studying civil engineering, is the 2016-17 recipient of the Associated Construction Women Endowed Scholarship at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Department of Engineering.

Lila completed a co-op at EMJ Corporation in Chattanooga, working primarily in the construction department with some estimating assignments.  During her co-op with EMJ Corporation, Lila also had responsibilities related to assisting project managers, project engineers, and estimators.  Lila reported that the most valuable benefit she received during her co-op assignment was "seeing the construction side of engineering and working with skilled people." 

Currently, Lila is serving as the Team Leader for her senior design group project.  

Congratulations, Lila, from the ladies of Associated Construction Women!
