ACE Mentor Program of New Hampshire, Denron Trade Scholarship Awarded

DURHAM, NH — The ACE Mentor Program of New Hampshire (ACE NH) is an after-school program designed to engage, excite, and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in architecture, construction, and engineering. The Denron Plumbing and HVAC Trade Scholarship is awarded to one graduating senior who exhibits exceptional engagement in each year’s program in addition to submitting a very well written essay and application. The ACE Mentor Program of New Hampshire announced that Winnacunnet High School Student, Ashleigh Trimarco, was selected to receive the 2020 Denron Plumbing and HVAC Trade Scholarship.

ACE NH Vice Chair Brian Knox and Denron President, Joel Pickering presented the scholarship as a part of the Winnacunnet HS Awards night virtual scholarship awards ceremony of which this message was shared.

“A huge congratulations to Ashleigh Trimarco on her ACE NH/Denron Plumbing and HVAC Trade Scholarship Award," said Brian Knox, Sr. Project Manager at PROCON and Vice Chair of ACE NH. "Ashleigh was fully committed to the 2019-2020 ACE NH program and will be attending Southern Maine Community College in their architectural and engineering design program in the fall of 2020."

This summer Trimarco and her family were met by the Winnacunnett High School Principal, William McGowan, ACE NH Mentors, and Denron to receive a big check and celebrate the award.

“Thank you to ACE NH and Denron for this amazing scholarship to help me with my double major in architectural and engineering design at Southern Maine Community College," Trimarco said. "Participating in ACE NH was such an amazing experience to see the collaboration of the Architects, Engineers, and Construction Managers working seamlessly together in one team."

“Congratulations to Ashleigh," Pickering said. "We are very proud to recognize her as the Denron Scholarship recipient this year. She is a very inquisitive, bright student and stood out during the ACE Oyster River Auditorium project. We are glad to be a part of the beginning of her career in the ACE Industry.”

ACE Mentor Program of New Hampshire launched its pilot program at Oyster River High School in Durham, New Hampshire, in 2019 and this year included a second year program at Oyster River, which included students from Winnacunnet High School. Another program was started in the Manchester school district with Memorial High School and the Manchester School of Technology. Last year the Oyster River High School students embarked on a two-month project where they learned hands-on, real life skills associated with ACE fields as they relate to the Moharimet Elementary School renovation project, and this year’s project was focused on a new or renovation auditorium project.

“ACE is a great program and had a large impact on our students at both Winnacunnet High School and Oyster River High School," McGowan said. "They were able to work in the field, applying what they learned in the classroom, with hands-on learning from top professionals in the field. We are proud of the partnership and collaboration with ACE NH, local businesses, and Oyster River high school that has a great impact on students in this region.”
