2017 Scholarship Winners:
Recently, the name and purpose of ACI's overall foundation changed from the Howard Knauf Scholarship Foundation to the Greater Cincinnati Construction Foundation (GCCF). Named gifts, such as The ACI Howard Knauf Scholarship Fund, existing, new donations and/or endowment funds will be apart of GCCF to support the overall mission and purpose. ACI member companies, employees, and community supporters believe strongly in giving back to the industry that has given them so much.
The Scholarship Committee remains a key part of the association and the newly named foundation, GCCF. Allied Construction Industries’ scholarship committee will continue to lead the process of prospecting, interviewing and selecting higher education scholarship recipients.

Emily Hansleman, Insurance Manager at Turner Construction, spent no time finding her creative outlets at ACI. Starting on the ACI-YP committee just a few short years ago helped Emily cultivate the idea of a Communications Task Force. She led that Task Force in creating a new and improved ACI website. One of the biggest additions is the committee pages you are visiting now! Since then Emily has joined the Scholarship and Marketing & Communications Committees all at the same time of planning a wedding and buying/selling multiple homes.
