DALLAS, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Dallas-Based MYCON General Contractors, Inc. (MYCON) has established three endowed Texas A&M University scholarships, totaling $75,000. The MYCON Education Foundation Endowed Scholarship, The Richard and Mary Ann Myers Memorial Scholarship, and The Devin Sebastian Memorial Scholarship will provide financial assistance to the next generation of construction management professionals.
"At MYCON, we are constantly looking for new ways to build a better future for our community," said Charles R. Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer of MYCON. "We are honored to support the future leaders of our industry with these scholarships, which are just one of the many initiatives we are taking to create awareness, encourage involvement, and promote giving back."
The MYCON Education Foundation was established in 2016 with a mission to help develop the next generation of construction management professionals and empower them to reach their highest potential. The inaugural MYCON Education Foundation Endowed Scholarship will financially support students from Myers’ alma mater as they prepare to meet the challenges of the ever-evolving construction industry and assume industry leadership roles.
The Richard and Mary Ann Myers Memorial Scholarship honors Myers’s parents and their influence on MYCON’s continued success.
