CONGRATULATIONS…to our scholarship recipients!


At last week’s NWR Builders Exchange Board of Directors meeting, scholarship recipients were chosen for the six $500 scholarships we will be awarding in January of 2022.

The only criterion for applying was that the student must be the son or daughter or an employee of a NWRBX member.  Also, any student, whether they are graduating from high school or currently attending a post high school, may apply.  The student is required to attend a post high school in the fall semester and to successfully complete that semester.  The scholarships will be awarded at our 2022 annual meeting after they have successfully fulfilled that semester.

All cities, names and company names were removed from the applications

for the board of directors’ reviewing.

The following are the board of directors’ selections:
