Missouri University of Science & Technology (S&T) student Tyler Collier received a $5,000 stipend for his scholastic achievement, aggregate industry-related work history, career goals and recommendations.

The stipend was awarded on behalf of the Missouri S&T’s Scholarship Foundation.

A senior in the university’s mining engineering department, Collier has spent previous summers working for Mississippi Lime Co., Unimin Corp. and has plans to intern with Lehigh Hanson this summer.

“Tyler’s success is driven by his intellectual curiosity, his passion for the mining profession and his ability to connect with others,” says Patrick Nichols, mine operations team leader at Mississippi Lime Co., who is also a former recipient of this award.

The scholarship was established by the late Pat Broaddus, founder of Associates Aggregates International, with the goal of educating future members of the aggregate industry. 

This scholarship is open to upper-class students from any engineering field at Missouri S&T who plan to pursue a career in the aggregate industry. Sponsors of the award include the Miner Alumni Association, the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association, and the Missouri Limestone Producers Association.
