WARREN, Mich. — The governors for the Scholarship Grant Committee awarded four scholarship grants to college-bound students at a June 2015 meeting held at the Roofers Union Local #149 office in Detroit, Mich. Commercial Roofing Contractors of Southeastern Michigan, through the Southeastern Michigan Roofing Contractors Association (SMRCA), along with the Roofers Union Local #149 annually award college scholarships to dependents of employees of member roofing contractors.

This year’s winners were: Daulton Kirk, Taylor, Mich.; Jeffry Laster, East China, Mich.; Mia Sampson, Farmington Hills, Mich.; and Alexandria Seifert, Mt. Pleasant, Mich.

Applicants were asked to submit an essay by selecting one or more of the following topics: roofing technology, roofing safety, roofing impact or roofing ethics to the Joint Union/Contractor Scholarship Committee. Winners receive scholarships in the amount of $1,000 contributed by the SMRCA, Roofers Union Local #149 and the contractor employer. The governors of the Scholarship Committee presented the awards.

Initiated more than 20 years ago, this program is an example of the SMRCA/Roofers Union Local #149 and SMRCA member contractors working to promote continued education and to encourage industry dependents to attend college.
