I just wanted to thank MACSC again for the scholarship I received this past Spring. I’m very grateful for the amount of support I have received in school, and you helped me out a lot. I am doing my internship at Wohlsen Construction this summer, and I thought I would share that with you all! I’m continuing my interest in Construction, and maybe someday I’ll make my way down to Philadelphia to work. Thanks so much!Samantha Harsh
