Thank you to all who made our 2018 Scholarship Awards Breakfast a HUGE success!

Thanks to our sponsors, ACE DC raised nearly $100,000 to support our program and scholarship recipients! We were thrilled to have over 250 mentors, board members, teachers, students and members of the built industry join us to celebrate another successful year. Chip Akridge delivered an inspiring keynote address, Diani Maxwell, one of our alumni scholarship winners, shared the impact ACE has had on her collegiate career, and we were thrilled to award Brad Miller our ACE DC Mentor of the Year award. And of course, we can't forget the 15 $4,000 scholarship checks we presented to our winners! Thank you again
