Burke High School senior Kaiasia Williams has pursued an engineering career for several years. This spring, her pursuit of that goal became a little easier thanks to a $20,000 CMiC-Allen Berg Memorial Scholarship from the ACE (Architecture, Construction, and Engineering) Mentor Program of America. Williams is one of 37 students nationwide to receive this particular scholarship.
The CMiC-Allen Berg Memorial awards are worth between $4,000 and $20,000 (and a total of $400,000 this year). They are named in honor of the late founder of the construction management software company CMiC. The scholarships are intended to assist talented and deserving students planning to study architecture, engineering, or construction in college.
Williams, who received one of the two $20,000 scholarships this year, will study Mechanical Engineering at Clemson University in the fall. She participated in Clemson’s Architecture Career Camp (in Charleston) during the summer before her junior year.
