Auburn University students Ryan Whaley and Sarah Alexander, seniors in the Department of Civil Engineering, have been awarded $8,000 scholarships from the Alabama Concrete Industries Association Foundation (ACIF). Whaley, a native of Eufaula, plans to continue his education through a graduate degree in structural engineering. Alexander, a Birmingham native, recently accepted a job offer in the construction division of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in Atlanta.

Founded in 1993 as a memorial to honor David Wright, ACIF provides funding for scholarships to seniors majoring in architecture, engineering and building sciences at universities in Alabama.
