The ARTBA Foundation is now accepting applications for the “Lanford Family Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship Program,” which provides financial assistance to help the children of highway workers killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty pursue post-high school education.

Launched in 1999 through a generous gift from the families of past ARTBA Chairmen, Jack (1991) and Stan (1999) Lanford of Roanoke, Va., the program is supported today with contributions from industry foundations, firms and executives, and labor organizations.  The scholarships, which have a value up to $5,000, have helped more than 120 worthy students from across the nation.

Nominations must be submitted online at by March 6.  If you have leads on students who might be eligible for the program, contact ARTBA’s Kashae Williams.
