Builders Association Presents Scholarships
The East Texas Builders Association (ETBA) proudly recognized and awarded seven scholarship recipients at the August 3rd dinner at Cassity Jones Building Materials. ETBA expressed their appreciation to Cassity Jones Building Materials for sponsoring and hosting this annual dinner for the last five years.
During the dinner, ETBA Scholarship Chairman, Bryan Robinson announced the newest recipients and ETBA President Mindy Hamilton presented certificates and checks to those present. The 2021/2022 James Kilpatrick scholarship recipients are Emma Cross, Landon Davis, Jaycie Bradley, Kylie Pepper, Katelyn Jester and Daniel Littlejohn. The 2021/2022 James Varner Scholarship recipient is Macey Alston. Hamilton and Robinson extended their most proud congratulations to each of these recipients.
The ETBA member companies that are represented by each of these recipients and their parents are: Austin Bank, Cassity Jones Building Materials, Meridian Brick, Eastman Credit Union, East Texas Homes, Tessa Bradley Custom Homes and National Wholesale Supply.
The James Kilpatrick Scholarship Fund was established in 2002 in memory of Mr. Kilpatrick, a long time builder member of the Association and ETBA President in 1992. The Kilpatrick Scholarship funds are generated through ETBA’s annual Sporting Clays Tournament.
The James Varner Memorial Scholarship was established in 2012 in memory of long time ETBA builder member, James Varner. Chairman Robinson recognized the Varner family members that were present to witness the ninth James Varner Scholarship being awarded. The funds for this scholarship are raised through private donations and only one Varner Scholarship is awarded each year. The recipient is usually pursuing a career in the building industry and the recipient’s name is displayed on a plaque in the Board Room at the ETBA office.
The East Texas Builders Association has awarded a total of $175,700 in scholarships since 2002. This would not be possible without each and every partner, supporter and sponsor.
