SITE Improvement Association, an independent construction contract group, awarded a $2,500 scholarship to Dustin Burt, a senior at Francis Howell High. He is one of six local high school seniors and college students to receive a scholarship.

Burt plans to study electrical and mechanical engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The scholarship is awarded on academic achievement, community involvement and financial need. Recipients have a parent who is employed by a SITE member company.

The organization has given more than $250,000 in college scholarships to more than 130 students for 17 years. Funds are made through voluntary contributions by SITE member companies and the SITE Advancement Foundation.

“Our members recognize the importance an education provides to the future leaders of our industry and we demonstrate that by offering the scholarship program,” said Terry Briggs, SITE executive director. “SITE has one of the longest, continuously running scholarship programs in the local construction industry.”
