Plainville, MA – The Steel Fabricators of New England (SFNE) announced that two $1,000 scholarships have been awarded to students who will use the funds to further their education in the trades. The scholarships were awarded to Shalor McKee from Dedham and Harry McDade from Rutland.
The SFNE scholarship was established to assist qualified students, and to encourage interest in the fabricated structural steel construction industry. The scholarship is one way that SFNE is engaged in a more comprehensive effort to address the shortage of skilled trade workers moving into the steel fabrication industry in New England.
Scholarship recipients must have been accepted to, or currently attending a technical school, two or four-year degree college program, or participating in a graduate degree program for civil engineering, architectural engineering, construction engineering, structural engineering, welding technology or construction management programs. Emphasis was placed on accomplishments, academic excellence and a strong desire to contribute to the fabricated structural steel construction industry.
The SFNE scholarship was funded by member donations and 2019 Golf Tournament Proceeds, with special thanks to:
