As the AGC Education Foundation continues to celebrate its thirtieth year a special dinner gala was held on October 28 to celebrate both those who were pioneers in establishing the foundation and those who have dedicated their time and resources to the organization. Many of the guests in attendance acted as the catalyst for the creation of the non-profit.
Bob Barrett current executive board member and former CEO of Sellen Construction awarded the Foundation’s 2010 Distinguished Service Award to long-time supporter and industry-renowned Allan Osberg. Over the years Osberg has played a pivotal role in contributing to the success and vision of the AGC Education Foundation.
