Paris resident earns ASPE scholarship

0

AUBURN — Logan Day of Paris is one of three Central Maine Community College students awarded scholarships recently from the Maine Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators.

Day and the other two recipients, Michael Smith of Gorham and Maxwell Stanley of Vinalhaven, are students in the Building Construction Technology program at CMCC.

The scholarships are named in memory of longtime ASPE member Guy Washburn, who was an educator and avid supporter of education in building construction.

The ASPE organization serves construction estimators by providing education, fellowship and the opportunity for professional development. The Maine chapter encourages a wide range of activities that provide learning experiences for estimators at all experience levels.

The BCT program at CMCC prepares students for successful employment in construction-related fields. Through a combination of classroom study, mock-ups and live projects, students obtain hands-on experience and become broadly familiar with methods, standards and codes commonly associated with the construction industry. The program offers students the opportunity to earn a certificate or an associate in applied science degree.
