Wisconsin Plumber Wins Bradford White Scholarship

December 18, 2003
Bradford White Corp. recently announced the recipients of its 2003 scholarship award funds during the "Celebration of Youth" opening session of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors-National Association's (PHCC's) annual convention in Las Vegas.

Ted Sikorski, vice president of marketing of Bradford White, presented $3,500 in industry scholarships to the winners. The winners, selected by the PHCC National Auxiliary scholarship committee, will use the funds to further their education in plumbing-heating-cooling (p-h-c)-related fields.

Second place winner was Tom McGuine, Wales, Wis., a journeyman plumber with the Wisconsin Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors.

Bradford White sponsors scholarship awards to students who are enrolled in a plumbing-heating-cooling (p-h-c)-related major at an accredited college or university or who are presently working full-time in an approved plumbing or HVAC apprenticeship program for a licensed plumber or HVAC contractor who is a PHCC member.

Sikorski also presented two checks during opening ceremonies:

  • $7,500 to PHCC for scholarships to be awarded to students enrolled in a PHCC apprenticeship program; and

  • $7,500 to the PHCC National Auxiliary for the college scholarship fund.
