AGCMO Build-a-Brat Picnic Declared Complete Success

By on June 21, 2018

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) hosted the 19th annual Build-A-Brat Picnic on June 7 at Tilles Park.

The picnic started back in 1999 and was hosted the first year by the AGC of St. Louis’ Human Resources Forum.  In 2000 the Young Constructors Forum (now known as the Construction Leadership Council or “CLC”) took it over and has continued hosting the event ever since.  The 19th annual picnic was certainly one of the best, with exceeding 370 people – far exceeded years past.

The Build-A-Brat Picnic also includes a silent auction to help raise money for scholarships and donations.  This year the CLC presented two scholarships of $2,000 each at the picnic.  The 2018 CLC scholarship recipients are Lauren Houston (of Kirksville) and Raymond Boos (of Cape Girardeau).

Lauren is a student at MWSU and is majoring in construction engineering technology.  Raymond is a student at MS&T and majoring in civil engineering.

The AGC of MO Education Foundation awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Craig Miller who is a student in the Carpenter Joint Apprentice Program and employed by Pace Construction Company.

The CLC also contributed $1,000 to Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis,  represented at the picnic by Harper Zielonko, Resource Development Relationship Manager.
