Our work is challenging, particularly intellectually challenging, and we value the hard work and the educational pursuits of our employees and their children. The Hunzinger Construction Company scholarship is offered to children of employees attending any accredited college, university or trade school. The completed scholarship applications are reviewed by a five-member committee of Hunzinger employees who make the recommendations. The scholarships were announced at our Annual Q3 Awards Ceremony in mid-November.
We congratulate this year’s scholarship winners Christopher Caspari, Sarah Christenson, Adeline Davies and Jenna Klermund.
