Carrying on the Legacy of Philanthropy and Mentorship

At the ACE 25th anniversary banquet, Dr. Amy Berg gave a moving speech, sharing that her family created the CMiC-Allen Berg Scholarships to continue her father’s legacy. As a true champion of giving back, it was Allen Berg’s “tradition to do good deeds in memory of loved ones, with the belief that this elevated the soul.” With the goal of doing something special to commemorate his life, they realized this his memory would live on through these scholarships. In fact, “ACE was the perfect fit,” as Allen Berg was a true proponent of “practical education so that one could develop a solid career to better themselves, their families and their communities.”

“ACE has really made me realize that construction is the perfect career for me and gave me a better understanding of why I could have a career in the skilled construction trades. Learning a trade is a task that will not be easy by any means, but I will continue to work as hard as I can to become a great tradesman.

Without the help of the CMiC scholarship and Berg family, I would have no other option to pay for Trades School. I am now able to enroll in school to become an electrician.”
