Congratulations to Grace Flemming & Jeffrey Meagher, the 2017 recipients of the Atlantic Concrete Association Memorial Scholarship!
ACA is excited to introduce our 2017 winners of the Memorial Scholarship established in memory of Norman MacLeod. Grace Flemming, daughter of John and Karen Flemming of Ocean Contractors Limited, graduated from Halifax West High School in the spring and will be starting her Bachelor of Science (Engineering) at the University of New Brunswick in September. Jeffrey Meagher recently graduated from Charles P Allen and will be starting Dalhousie University in the fall in Engineering as well. Jeffrey is son to Tracy Dobson, of OSCO and Tom Meagher.
The committee based their decision on academic achievement and an essay submitted by all the candidates, which was no easy task. The Atlantic Concrete Association would like to congratulation Grace and Jeffrey and wish all our entrants good luck in all their future endeavors!
The IWK Foundation thanks DecementFest
On December 5th, the Atlantic Concrete Association hosted its 7th annual DecementFest at the Garrison Brewery in downtown Halifax. Each year ACA members and invited guests get together for a little entertainment and socializing to kick off the holiday season. To celebrate this year, ACA donated $500 to the IWK Foundation for the Child Life Department for Christmas Needs program to help children during the holidays at the IWK.Photo: Pam Woodman (ACA, Executive Director) Daisy Dobden (Assist to Philanthropy & Communications, IWK Foundation) & Scott Flemming (ACA President & Ocean Contractors Limited)
