The Davis Memorial Foundation has helped dozens of loved ones of roofing contractors from across the country achieve their academic dreams and further their careers for more than 20 years. Named in honor of Larry and Mary Davis following their tragic deaths in a plane crash, the non-profit operated by the Western States Roofing Contractors Association (WSRCA), has helped more than 300 students attend a college, university or trade school since 1995.
Through the generosity of roofing contractors and other industry professionals, the scholarship program grew from a $5,000 grant to $50,000 in 2017. This year, the foundation doubled that amount and for the first time issued 20 $5,000 scholarships to students across the country.
