Southern Utah Home Builders Association awards $16,000 in scholarships

ST. GEORGE — The Southern Utah Home Builders Association has announced its 2016 SUHBA Scholarship recipients. Increased from last year’s $14,000, a total of $16,000 in college scholarships will be given out this year to 29 students. SUHBA has distributed over $100,000 for college scholarships since 2006.

Scholarships are made possible in part by funds generated from the annual SUHBA Charity Golf Tournament and the St. George Area Parade of Homes. This year, the golf tournament will take place June 10. The next St. George Parade of Homes will be Feb. 17-26, 2017.

In addition to the scholarships, up to $4,000 has been allocated this year to help SUHBA members attend the “Utah Building Industry Conference” held Nov. 4 and for members to attend other SUHBA-sponsored education events. $2000 has also been given to the “Skills USA” program through Dixie Applied Technology College to compete this year at the national level.

Representatives from SUHBA said they believe in the value of education and are pleased to be able to give out these scholarships to deserving individuals attending college or technical institutions. Preference for scholarships is given to students pursuing construction-related education and students affiliated with SUHBA.
