ECI SITE CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT, INC. RAISES $7,000 FOR THE AIMS FOUNDATION TO SUPPORT CONSTRUCTION TRADES SCHOLARSHIPS
ECI Site Construction Management, Inc. (ECI) is pleased to support the future of the construction industry by raising $7,000 for the Aims Foundation’s construction trades scholarship program. The foundation is the charitable arm of Aims Community College in Greeley, and all funds raised will help offset expenses for the next generation of construction leaders.
“While we are all navigating the impacts of COVID-19, we are honored to have dedicated partners that stepped up and made generous contributions in lieu of ECI’s annual golf tournament, which was unfortunately cancelled this year,” said Ted Johnson, President of ECI. “ECI believes the investment in education and supporting individuals who will be contributing to the future of our industry is paramount, now more than ever.”
The donation is comprised of contributions from four generous entities: ECI, Flood and Peterson, FirstBank, and The Greenway Foundation. ECI has supported the Aims Foundation for the past several years, and, due to the size of the 2020 donation, the foundation is increasing the number of scholarships distributed to eight total gifts. These funds will go towards numerous aspects of construction students’ education, including books, attendance costs, tuition, fees, etc. During times of economic uncertainty, assisting future careers in the construction industry is more important than ever.
“Aims students have been heavily affected by the pandemic, and scholarship support is essential to ensuring they remain on track with their education,” said Kelly Jackson, Executive Director of the Aims Foundation. “Our corporate partnerships are a key component to propelling student success, and we appreciate the united effort to creating a highly trained workforce.”
