CrossRoad Engineers Awards College Scholarships

During the 2009 staff Christmas party, Chip Charles made a big announcement regarding a new benefit for CRE employees. Inspired by a dream he had, Charles and the other partners decided to award college scholarships to all children of CRE employees with at least ten years of service. Every child is eligible to receive up to $5,000 per year towards college expenses; they need only submit a short essay addressing their college plans. At the beginning of 2010, CRE proudly awarded its first college scholarships to Todd Benentt's son, Tyler, and Bob Bleich's daughters, Erin and Danielle. In July of 2012, CRE awarded a scholarship to John Whiteside's daughter, Ashley. In June of 2015, CRE awarded yet another scholarship to the Whiteside family as their son, Cody, prepares to enter college. To date CRE has awarded over $35,000 in scholarships!!
