Brianna Karelin, a Construction Management student at the University of
Cincinnati, has been awarded the 2017 Tuttle Construction Tiny Rauch Scholarship. Karelin is the 15th recipient to be awarded this annual scholarship. She was presented with a $1,000 check from the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Ohio Education Foundation sponsored on behalf by Tuttle Services, Inc. to assist with her college education.
The Tiny Rauch Scholarship is annually granted to a collegiate student pursuing a career in the construction industry that excels both in and out of the classroom. Karelin holds a 3.20 cumulative GPA and is active in many university student organizations including the Construction Students Association (CSA) and volunteers with numerous community outreach and service projects.
In her scholarship essay, Karelin, hopes to make a difference in how women are perceived in the construction industry by continuously looking for ways to bring more visibility to women in construction. “This industry provides endless possibilities for women and I want to break through this so-called boundary. I feel the construction industry will be even better as a result of women and men having the same respect and opportunities.”
Karelin will graduate from the University of Cincinnati in April of 2018.
