For the 12th year in a row, Tecta has awarded scholarships to children of our employees across the country who have demonstrated superior academic skills. Over the years, this generous program, named in honor of John F. Miller – a Tecta founder and its first Chairman – has awarded well over $850,000 in scholarships since it was started a little over 10 years ago.
This year we had 51 applicants and most received an award. Applicants are chosen for an award based on their family’s commitment to the student’s continued academic success and perceived potential of the student, including GPA, a personal statement of their aspirations, career and personal goals, extra-curricular achievements, financial need and recommendations from teachers, coaches and influential adults in their lives.
