MCA hands out scholarship money.

The Hudson Valley Mechanical Contractors Association recently gave $1,000 scholarships, for the fourth year in a row, to graduating high school seniors in the Hudson Valley who are planning on majoring in mechanical engineering or construction management, said Patricia E. Ploeger, executive director.

This year's outstanding recipients, selected on the basis of scholastic achievement and financial need, are Brewster High School graduate Kyle Aulabaugh, who is going on to Dutchess Community College: Archbishop Stepinac High School's Sheldon Thompson, who is going to Virginia Tech; Pelham Memorial High School's Spencer Lord, going on to Wentworth Institute of Technology; and Somers High School graduate Ivana Veliskova, who is going on to Boston University.

"We are pleased to encourage qualified students who are focusing their studies in the fields of mechanical engineering or construction management," Ploeger said. That brings to 19 the number of high school graduates who have received MCA scholarships.

Hudson Valley Mechanical Contractors Association (MCA), serving two dozen leading contracting firms in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and Ulster counties, has been dedicated for nearly 60 years to promoting best practices and professional standards.
