FORT WAYNE, IN – Building Contractors Association of Northeast Indiana (BCA) proudly announces winners of the 2021 Presidential Merit Scholarships and Michael H. Kinder Jr. Memorial Scholarship. These programs were created to recognize significant accomplishments and reward worthy students in furthering their education in construction-related college degree programs. The recipients of the two $2500 Presidential Merit Scholarships are Trevor Craig and Jacob Kuhn. The $2500 Michael H. Kinder Jr. Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Reis Sosebee.

Craig is in her third year at Purdue University in the Construction Management Technology program. She is employed by CME Corporation, where she has gained estimating experience through her internships. Her eventual goal is to become a senior estimator with a large general contractor. She loves construction estimating because she gets to assign dollar amounts to every piece of a project and gets to learn the project inside and out before it comes to life.

Kuhn is in his third year at the University of Cincinnati in the Architecture program. He is employed by Barton-Coe-Vilamaa Architects & Engineers as an intern. Through prior experience with an insulation contractor, he visited various jobsites and learned how a building is put together. He saw some of the hardships that people had to endure during their day. Once licensed, he plans to design for more than the people who will use the building, but also for the people who will construct it.

Sosebee will be graduating from Homestead High School in June. He will start his college education at Purdue University this fall in the Construction Management Technology program and hopes to complete that in three years with the college credit he earned in high school. Reis is the son of Chris Sosebee of Weigand Construction. His career goal is to work for a construction firm in or around Fort Wayne as a superintendent or project engineer. He feels his love for the outdoors and strong people skills make construction the perfect career for him.
