Community involvement is an important part of our commitment to doing business the right way.
Through local business sponsorships of community events to non-profit endowments furthering higher education, were proud to sow seeds of opportunity into the lives of others to help make a difference in this world for the benefit of us all.
We extend our best wishes to this years scholarship recipients and to participants at Virginia Techs construction engineering and management program, which we have helped fund. Commit your talents and resources to improving the lives of others, and you will achieve success in your own life, as well.
