Wolte awarded 2019 Merit Shop Construction Scholarship

While many of our associations are still collecting their 2020 scholarship applications, we would like to recognize the 2019 scholarship recipients from Construction Education Foundation of Minnesota, which was sponsored by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Minnesota and North Dakota member companies. The foundation awarded Calvin Wolte a Merit Shop Construction Scholarship.

“I am honored to have been selected for the scholarship this year. It will help greatly in paying for my next year of college,” Wolte said.

Wolte, who is from Lakeville, MN, is continuing his construction management education at South Dakota State University when he received the scholarship.

While on break from school, Wolte has been working with different companies to see what part of the construction industry he enjoys most.

“As my ultimate goal is to have my own construction company. Somethings I enjoy doing are hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. Once again thank you for selecting me. It is much appreciated!”

Recipients of the scholarship must be employed by or are a daughter/son of an employee of, an ABC member in good standing or are a member of an ABC student chapter or are a veteran of the US Armed Services.

The 2019 sponsors were Lunseth Plumbing & Heating Co. Inc., Protouch Painting Inc., The Builder’s Group, and Willmar Electric Service.

Each scholarship winner received $1,300 each toward their construction education. All three recipients are attending college for construction management.
