SBACNJ Presents Scholarships to Five OCVTS Students
By: Shore Builders Association
Members of the Young Professionals Committee and other association representatives were faced with choosing the winners from OCVTS instructors' nominees, which was not an easy decision. Chair of the YPC, Chris Cowan of CohnResznick explains, "As we reviewed the entries for this scholarship program, we quickly realized how difficult it would be to choose. Each and every one of the students entered were deserving of these scholarships. Each graduating student received a gift from the association, a contractor grade tape measure, that is a small token they can take with them throughout their careers." SBACNJ Young Professionals would like to congratulate Nicholas Bonaventura, Mason Bell, Stephen Emmons, Steven Bolmer, and Anthony Krueger on being named the scholarship recipients.
In addition to the scholarship program, members of SBACNJ attended the House Dedication Ceremony on June 13, 2019 for a Habitat for Humanity home built by OCVTS students. The house is located in Manahawkin, New Jersey and was built under the supervision of the students' instructors, along with staff and volunteers of Habitat for Humanity. This home is for a local family that was selected for the program, and they will be moving in sometime in July. "Our outreach to the OCVTC students includes supporting the projects they are involved with in any way we can. This includes our association members working with the Job Services Coordinator at the school for employment opportunities for graduating students," Cowan continues.
SBACNJ is a chartered local chapter of both the New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). SBACNJ was founded in 1945 to help builders and those involved in the building industry to better contend with the challenges facing their industry through collective action. The association serves all building related industries from trades and subcontractors to small and large builders. In addition, related companies such as mortgage, realty, insurance, accounting, legal, and marketing benefit from the services, programs, and information the association offers its members.
