CAGNY honors JAC scholars.
In 2001, CAGNY created the Scholarship Program in honor of John A. Cavanagh, CAGNY's Chairman Emeritus, to enhance educational opportunities for tomorrow's construction industry leaders and has awarded over 50 scholarships since the Program's inception. Each CAGNY member scholarship recipient receives $3,000 per year for up to four years to help pay for tuition and related expenses and is awarded the scholarship based on outstanding academic achievements. For the fourth consecutive year, CAGNY contributed a one-time stipend of $500 to five students whom the Nominating Committee deemed academically worthy to receive an "honorable mention."
This is the second year that CAGNY awarded two additional scholarships to New York City public high school graduates pursuing careers in the construction industry. The two recipients were selected for their outstanding academic achievements and were referred to CAGNY through collaboration with the ACE Mentor Program. Each was awarded $1,500 per year for up to four years to pursue an education in a constructionrelated field; three additional recipients awarded one-time stipends of $500 as "honorable mentions." In addition to being honored at the CAGNY John A. Cavanagh Scholarship Luncheon, the students were also recognized at the Annual ACE Mentor Scholarship Luncheon held at the Union League Club.
The 2007 John A. Cavanagh Scholarship CAGNY Member-Company Recipients are: AMEC Construction Management's John J. Mandile, honorable mention; Bovis Lend Lease LMB's Nicholas F. Amicucci, scholarship recipient; Lauren Ruggiero, honorable mention; HRH Construction's Antonio V.
