2014 Richard D. Poole Scholarship Recipient Announced
September 4, 2014 —Stewart & Tate would like to congratulate Joe Grabowski, the 2014 winner of the annual Richard D. Poole Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship is given by Stewart & Tate in honor of Rick Poole, the founder of Poole Construction, which is now Stewart & Tate Construction’s Building Group. The recipient is chosen through an essay contest by a panel of three judges. All high school seniors immediately related to a Stewart & Tate Construction or Lewis Contractors full-time employee who plan to further their education in the fall are eligible to enter.
Joe will be a freshman at James Madison University where he will be studying engineering as well as participating in outreach programs to help people in need. Joe was drawn to JMU by their commitment to community service, a culture that was very important to him. Joe’s Dad, Mike, is a superintendent at Lewis Contractors who recently celebrated his 35th anniversary with the firm.
