Jacob Ellerbrock, a student at Bowling Green State University majoring in Architecture, has been awarded the 2018 Tuttle Construction Tiny Rauch Scholarship. Ellerbrock is the 17th recipient to be awarded this annual scholarship. He was presented with a $1,000 check from the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Ohio Education Foundation sponsored on behalf by Tuttle Services, Inc. to assist with his college education.
The Tiny Rauch Scholarship is annually granted to a collegiate student interested in pursuing a career in the construction industry that excels both in and out of the classroom. When Jacob was asked to describe how he would plan to make a difference in the construction industry he stated, “I would like to introduce more sustainable designs into everyday buildings. Every day, sustainable design practices are refined, creating more efficient systems. As they become refined, the price tag on them comes down, and they become more affordable. Because of this, manu more people would be able to afford these systems. I believe that these systems should be introduced to widespread residential use. These systems can easily be integrated into homes electrical and heating systems, and would have monetary paybacks to the home owners. It would allow for average home buyers to purchase homes with sustainable designs.”
