A LOOK BACK AT THE LAST YEAR OF THE DECADE Since 1968 the foundation has celebrated the achievement of the construction industry and highlighted the stories of construction management students throughout the country. As we wrapped up the last year of another decade, we couldn’t be prouder of the continued success of our university partners, students, faculty members and donors. Three of the successful programs we celebrate did not exist at the beginning of this decade. So while we continue to award scholarships, at a level we could not have predicted in the year 2010, we also financially support students who are entering the construction industry as craft and technical workers; support teaching faculty in the field of construction; and develop case studies to further advance our industry. 2019 was a very busy and productive year for us as well as our industry partners.

During the AGC National convention in Denver the foundation celebrated our donors at a special reception. The reception gives donors and scholarship recipients time to meet, network and talk about our industry.

2019 Our industry residencies bring together AGC member companies and faculty members to provide a collaborative summer experience for a professor. Eight residencies were sponsored in 2019 including that of Julia Katherine Day of Washington State University.

Julia Katherine Day & Team

“During the industry residency, I exponentially expanded my knowledge of both industry and Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems to bring into the classroom. This experience led to lasting relationships as well as a research grant, which has allowed me to hire several undergraduate students to help develop and implement a tenant engagement program for the building to ensure net-zero energy use.” JULIA KATHERINE DAY, WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY

Written by teams of faculty members and AGC contractors, the foundation’s industry case studies are based on actual experience and provide students with the opportunity to work through issues in a classroom setting. The coordination among teams and the foundation allows us to provide case studies to professors all over the world free of charge. Seven studies are available online and eight more are in development, including two on safety issues, one of which was generously funded by the American Contractors Insurance Group (ACIG).

A LOOK BACK AT 2019

KLINGER OUTSTANDING SENIOR DEVIN GAUDETTE

William A. Klinger was our first Board president and helped organize Iowa State University’s Construction Engineering curriculum. In 2019 we recognized Devin Gaudette in celebration of his award as Klinger Outstanding Senior. Devin has been awarded the Iowa State University Academic Recognition Award, AGC Education and Research Scholarship, Scott Kinkade Memorial Scholarship, MBI Ken Lewis Scholarship, Steve Maloney Memorial Scholarship, NECA Scholarship, and the APAI Fred Carlson Company, Inc. Scholarship.

Devin Gaudette

As a member of the AGC student chapter, Devin participated in three trips over spring and Thanksgiving breaks, as well as working on building ramps around Ames and demolishing a bridge. During the break trips, AGC usually travels to an area stricken by storm damage and helps the community rebuild. The summer after freshman year, Devin landed the first of two internships with the Ryan Companies. From May to December of 2016, he completed a co-op with them as well. Because most of his experience with the Ryan Companies involved work in an office, he sought field experience during an internship at Story Construction, for whom he worked on job sites. After graduation he will take a full-time position with the Ryan Companies in Des Moines and fulfill his desire to see the physical progress of his work.
