FBi Construction sets up scholarship fund, makes first four awards

FBi Construction, headquartered in Florence initiated a scholarship fund at Eastern Carolina Community Foundation to encourage people to seek a career in the construction industry late in 2017 to make inaugural awards in the spring of 2018. Applications were accepted from high schools, colleges and technical school applicants in all seven counties of the Pee Dee that the Community Foundation serves, plus Horry and Georgetown.

Four students were chosen to receive a $1,000 award. They are: Wendy Bueno of Mullins, Morgan Dale Grant of Andrews, Charles Alexander Godwin III of Florence, and Maxwell Wheeler of Darlington. All of the recipients will be attending Florence Darlington Technical College next year with the exception of Ms. Grant who will attend Clemson.

The students and their families attended a reception at FBi Construction on May 17 to receive their awards and tour the business to get a better idea of what their future career entails.

Since 1982, people in the Carolinas and beyond have put their trust in FBi Construction as they continuously provide a full range of construction services to municipal, retail, industrial, educational, medical and faith-based institutions. Their desire to fund scholarships stems not only from a strong belief in education but also from a commitment to improve the quality of life where they do business. They know that their proven track record of successful projects is the result of the right people from management to office support staff and field employees. Providing scholarship assistance to students will continue to improve that talent pool which maintains FBi’s commitment to excellence.

When donors turn their passion for helping mankind into scholarship funding which is professionally administered by ECCF, the entire Pee Dee region benefits. Scholarship funds are endowed for perpetuity, which means they will remain available to support students far into the future and ECCF’s administration of the scholarships funds is carried out on a nondiscriminatory basis after careful review of eligible applications. Scholarship awards are paid directly to the educational institution where the successful candidate is enrolled.
