The ACI Foundation, the non-profit subsidiary of American Concrete Institute that facilitates industry research, collaboration, student fellowships and scholarships, is pleased to announced that the fourth annual installment of the Richard D. Stehly Memorial Hockey Game raised over $2,350 for the Richard D. Stehly Memorial Scholarship. All ACI Foundation student awards, including more information about the Richard D. Stehly Memorial Scholarship, can be found here: https://www.acifoundation.org/Scholarships-and-Fellowships.aspx.
Richard (Dick) Stehly had been member of ACI since 1980 and was elected president in 2010. He believed that attracting and educating ACI’s youngest members was crucial for both the future of the concrete industry and ACI. His conviction for investing in ACI’s posterity even lead him to bequest a portion of his estate to fund future ACI scholarships and fellowships.
“Seeing so many people in action to not only honor a friend and past president, but to help continue Dick’s legacy by assisting a student through this scholarship speaks volumes about the dedication of ACI members to each other, to the Institute, and to the ACI Foundation,” states Ann Daugherty, Director of the ACI Foundation.
The Richard D. Stehly Memorial Hockey Game took place during ACI’s latest convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, this past April. ACI members and staff comprised the rosters for the two competing teams. The fifth installment of the Richard D. Stehly Memorial Hockey Game is being planned for next year’s ACI Spring Convention in Detroit, Michigan, USA, March 26-30, 2017.
The Richard D. Stehly Scholarship is awarded annually through the ACI Foundation to an outstanding student enrolled in an undergrad degree program studying concrete with an emphasis on structural design, materials, or construction. The ACI Foundation was established to promote progress, innovation, and collaboration through research and scholarships like the Richard D. Stehly Memorial Scholarship.
