WARREN, Mich. – The Governors for the Scholarship Grant Committee awarded four Scholarship Grants to college bound students at a June 2016 meeting held at the Roofers Union Local #149 office in Detroit, MI.  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:  Ashley Arnold, Sterling Heights, Mich.; Ryan Cronk, Macomb, Mich.; Ashlie Hawe, Shelby Twp., Mich.; and Elise Tomaszewski, St. Clair Shores, 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 $1000 contributed by the SMRCA, Roofers Union Local #149 and the Contractor Employer. The Governors of the Scholarship Committee presented the awards. 

Initiated over 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.
