2024 GHBA Scholarship recipients and donors at the Mid-Year Economic Forecast Luncheon

The GHBA celebrated a significant milestone by honoring a record-shattering 22 scholarship recipients of the 2024 Scholarship Program, presented by the GHBA Associate Council. The honorees received their awards on stage at the Mid-Year Forecast Luncheon on June 18, 2024. Awards were presented by GHBA Associate Council President Jeremy Linzer with Builders Post-Tension; GHBA President Matthew Reibenstein with Royal Design Build Co.; Community Service Committee Chairman Pat Wilson with Legends Architectural Stone; and GHBA CEO Aimee Bertrand. Nearly all 22 students were present to be honored.

Eligible scholarship recipients are college-bound children of association members, and participants in official GHBA Workforce Partner Programs. Thanks to our incredibly generous donors, $88,000 was raised for 2024 scholarships. Students received $4,000 each toward post-high school studies.

Congratulations to the 22 outstanding GHBA Scholarship honorees:
