TXAPA SCHOLARSHIP
PROGRAM CHANGES
PRODUCE BIG RESULTS
By Karen Pagitt

T

he 2016-2017 TXAPA Scholarship Program Live and
Silent Auctions were very successful raising $125,000
for deserving students through the TXAPA program.
Following that success, the TXAPA Scholarship Auction
Committee worked with TXAPA's officers and directors to update
the scholarship program that has been in existence more than
30 years. Their actions resulted into a dramatic change in the
program that quickly produced beneficial outcomes for students
and ultimately the asphalt paving industry.
Because of the changes unanimously approved by the TXAPA
Board of Directors the TXAPA Scholarship Program received more
nominations from more members than ever before. With so many
great students nominated the Board decided to expand the program
to include awarding more TXAPA Scholarships to more students.
Because of the generosity of TXAPA's members and partners during the live and silent auction TXAPA was able to award 16 full
scholarships and (2) special circumstances scholarships for a
total of 18. A record $85,000 in scholarships has been awarded

to students either working for member companies or majoring in
studies related to the construction industry.
Recently TXAPA President Robert Hall thanked Joe Cruz, TXAPA
Scholarship Committee Chair and Cayetano Silva, III, TXAPA Immediate
Past President for directing the changes to the program. President
Hall stated, "Back in 1985 this association took a chance on me and
gave me a scholarship while I attended Texas A&M. I know how much
that meant to me and the opportunities it provided. It is gratifying
that our membership not only continues this great opportunity but
grows this program to help even more students. I deeply appreciate
everyone's generosity and support to this great effort."
To recognize the next generation of leaders in our industry, TXAPA
scholarship recipients has been invited to attend the 43rd TXAPA
Annual Meeting Dinner and Scholarship Auction Sept. 21, 2017 at
the La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa. This will be a great time for
members to meet and congratulate these individuals. Also, to celebrate the evening following the Live Auction Texas Music favorite
Kevin Fowler will provide an evening of honky-tonk music and fun.

Please join us in congratulating the most recent TXAPA scholarship recipients:
