ARTBA established this fund in 1999 with a gift from two Virginia highway contractors and their companies – Stan Lanford of Lanford Brothers and Jack Lanford with Adams Construction Company – and seeks to provide post-high school financial assistance to the children of highway workers killed or permanently disabled on the job.
More than 200 scholarships have been awarded to worthy students from 32 states to pursue undergraduate and graduate courses, noted ARTBA in a statement, as well as technical training. Scholarships have a value of up to $10,000 annually.
