Annual Richard A. Nickles Memorial Scholarship and Awards Reception
On April 13, 2023 SCMEF co-hosted the Annual Richard A. Nickles Memorial Scholarship and Awards Reception with the Construction Management Department. SCMEF was pleased to award $37,500 in scholarships, adding to the combined total of over $75,000 in scholarships given to CM students that night.
A special recognition was given to Mikael Anderson for his role as the CM Dept Chair for the past 14 years, and the video from the ASC Regions 6 & 7 Student Competition, brought to us by our very own Sac State film students, was also unveiled that evening.
Thank you to all of the contributors, attendees, and donors who helped make the event possible.
Evening w/ Industry & Fall Welcome
On November 14, 2022 SCMEF’s annual Evening With Industry event was held. This annual event welcomes Sacramento State Construction Management students, SCMEF Board Members, professors, and staff members to construction sites around Sacramento. This year’s event welcomed more than 50 participants to two project sites.
The first site was Clark Construction’s project at the new Sacramento Courthouse, and hosted by SCMEF Board Member Forest Podva. Attendees got to go for an elevator ride to the top of the building to review the newly installed HVAC system, and get a panoramic view of the city’s skyline. They also got to review Clark’s QC practices in what will eventually become a court room.
Attendees also got to visit the Hensel Phelps’ Richards Boulevard Office Complex, hosted by SCMEF Board Member Jeff Wellenstein. Attendees got to tour all 4 building complexes to see the different stages of progress, as well as a mock-up of a final room.
After the tours, Hensel Phelps hosted a BBQ dinner on their custom mobile BBQ and smoker. Attendees were treated to ribs, tri tip, chicken, sausage, pasta, cornbread, and refreshments.
Special thank you to everyone from Clark and Hensel Phelps that shared their time and escorted us around their projects, and a huge thank you to everyone from Hensel Phelps that helped cook an amazing dinner!
