Thomas Logan, a rising senior at Western Kentucky University, was selected as the scholarship’s first recipient.
Logan was a summer intern for IMPACT Strategies, where he worked at their Fenton Logistics Park jobsite, gaining hands-on experience as a project engineer. Upon completing the internship, Logan was awarded a $2,000 scholarship to be used towards his next semester’s expenses.
IMPACT Strategies focuses most of their recruiting efforts towards partnering with local colleges and universities that have construction management programs. They recently expanded this to include more Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) throughout the Midwest. Recruiting for its 2023 internship program is now underway.
