“In my time at Ohio State I have learned a lot both inside and outside the classroom. The construction systems management program within CFAES allows hands-on experiences that other colleges don’t offer. I like to look at blueprints and turn what’s on paper into reality for others. Joining the American Concrete Institute at Ohio State has broadened my knowledge and I use it frequently in my job at Thompson Concrete. These involvements have given me the opportunity to build lasting relationships within my field of study and advance in the construction industry. I am very grateful for this scholarship because I didn’t have to work all the time and I’ve been able to focus on furthering my education. Without the support of great people like those at Bob Evans, my experience at Ohio State wouldn’t have been possible. This scholarship helped me follow my dream of going to the best university in America, The Ohio State University.”
-Glen Tipton, junior in construction systems management, a recipient of 4-H Bob Evans Farms Scholarships
