Youngstown, Ohio, December 9, 2019 – Since 1971, the Builders Association has awarded $189,210 in scholarships to collegiate men and women studying to become construction professionals in our region.

The students were awarded their scholarships at The Builders’ annual meeting on December 3rd. A special Scholarship Committee reviewed applications and recommended this year’s honorees. That committee consisted of Chairman Frank Vendemia of Vendrick Construction, Paul Johnson of Adolph Johnson & Son, Sam Boak of Boak & Sons, Joe DeSalvo of DeSalvo Construction and Bob Donatelli of Donatelli Electric.
