ACE Mentor Program grew leaps and bounds between 2014-2015 and 2015-2016! We were able to give out 4 scholarships totaling $5,500! Congratulations to all our amazing students and especially our scholarship winners! We are so very proud to be a part of your life.
Last year, ACE Mentor Program of Sarasota had 74 active students from Riverview High School participate in the 16-week program. At the end-of-the-year Scholarship & Awards Banquet, the students presented their final project to a panel of industry professionals. Their project was to develop Conceptual Site Plans for the $40 million remodeling project at Sarasota High School. Students in each team took on individual roles within the “company” which included: project manager, architect, civil engineer, transportation engineer, contractor, landscape architect, and cost estimator. With the assistance of their mentors, the students had to complete a landscape plan, transportation plan, civil site plan, cost estimate, and construction schedule. The Banquet provided the platform for the students to work as a team toward a common goal, present their original site designs, as well as showcase what they learned during the year. All students who participated received a goody bag; members of the winning team received t-shirts and additional gifts. At the banquet, ACE Mentor Program of Sarasota awarded $2,900 worth of scholarships to four future architects, engineers, or construction managers! Scholarships were made possible by our generous sponsors and donations. Thank you to our sponsors, supporters, parents, and especially our mentors, speakers, and school administrators for a successful first year!
