The Davis Memorial Foundation continues to help the loved ones of roofing contractors from across the country achieve their academic dreams and further their careers in the trades after 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 stakeholders from across the country, the foundation issued 10 $5,000 scholarships to deserving students at the Western Roofing Expo. They are:

Tyler Kleinsasser -- South Dakota School of Mines and Technology
Megan Ellsworth -- University of Colorado at Denver
