By |  September 18, 2013

A panel of industry judges chose Matthew Blake, a sophomore at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, as the recipient of the 2013 Barry K. Wendt Memorial Scholarship. Blake began his college education at Northeastern University but left to work in residential construction. He then joined a sand-and-gravel operation, where he worked for nearly 10 years before moving to Alaska in 2010 to work at a remote gold-mining operation in the southern Brooks Range. According to NSSGA, Blake hopes to make a career in the aggregates industry.
