North Central Region CIM Patrons Distribute First Scholarship Checks

At the recent Aggregate and Ready-Mix Association of Minnesota (ARM) convention in Minneapolis, the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) North Central Region Chairman Thor Becken presented South Dakota State University (SDSU) CIM students with the program’s first scholarship checks. SDSU CIM students Brittany DeGroot and Josue Mendez both received checks for $3,000 to help with tuition costs for the upcoming semester. Many thanks to all of the members of the Patrons’ group that made these scholarships possible.
