Last year at the Mike Rozier Construction Company Christmas Party our president, Michael Rozier, announced the creation of the Mike Rozier Construction Scholarship Fund at the Pinebelt Foundation. This scholarship was established by Mike Rozier Construction Company Inc. in order to provide financial aid for the children or grandchildren of Mike Rozier Construction employees in need of assistance to pursue higher education. The purpose of this fund is to provide annual scholarships to deserving high school seniors who have been accepted to an accredited two-year or four-year college or university or vocational program, and/or to deserving high school graduates currently enrolled in an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational/technical program.
We are proud to announce the two recipients of the inaugural Mike Rozier Construction Scholarship are Gabby Hutson and Mackenzie Ward.
