Stantec Joins ACE Mentor Program as National Sponsor Print E-mail
Written by Stantec   
Thursday, 14 October 2010

Stamford, CT - October 14, 2010 – Officials of the Architectural, Construction and Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program of America announce today that Stantec has joined its ever growing number of sponsors. 

Research indicates that ACE is not only accomplishing its mission of “engaging, exciting, and enlightening high school students to pursue careers in architecture, construction, and engineering”, it’s also achieving additional results, including increasing high school graduation rates, and diversification in the architecture, construction, and engineering industries.

“We are delighted that a company the size and scope of Stantec has joined our national sponsorships and will hold a seat on our national board, said Pamela Mullender, President and CEO of the ACE Mentor Program. “Stantec recognizes the impact the program has had on the need for diversification and in reaching qualified kids for the new generation of the construction workforce. Not only will their participation enhance our existing program but will help us grow.”

“Like many industries, ours faces the challenge of attracting young people,” says Rich Allen, Senior Vice President and COO at Stantec. “Participating in the ACE program allows us to be actively involved in educating young people about engineering and architecture, and allows our employees to personally interact with students and get them excited and interested in what’s happening in our field.”

“Given that the construction industry is the backbone of this country—the largest employer in the US—and that ACE includes two of the fields that rank among the top 10 paying jobs for students out of college, and four of the fields that rank among the top 8 paying jobs that do not require a degree, one can conclude that, as the Program continues to grow, it will have an increasingly positive impact on vital American industries and life within the US,”  said Ms. Mullender. 

Stantec joins other companies such as Turner Construction, EMCOR Group, Gilbane Construction, Parsons Brinckerhoff, AECOM, HOK, Limbach Facility Services, Professional Service Industries, among others, as national sponsors.  For a complete list of sponsors, please go to www.acementor.org.
