Second Annual Awards Luncheon
January 16, 2014
Our 2nd Annual Meeting & Awards Luncheon was a great way to start off our year. We had 23 attendees for this luncheon that was held at the Baldwin & Shell Construction Company’s office in Little Rock. We gave out 2 Concrete Awards & we had 3 student’s to present their research papers to our chapter.
We introduced our 2014 Arkansas Chapter Officers & Board of Directors. They are as follows:
President: Greg Campbell/Ash Grove Cement
Past President: Mark Littrell/Cromwell
Vice President: Bryan Powers/Consultant
Secretary/Treasurer: Linda Weaver/Webco
Board of Directors:
Steve Horton– Razorback Concrete, Co.
Rita Madison– ARMCA
Frances Griffith– University of Arkansas at Fayetteville
Larry Jones– Baldwin & Shell Construction, Co.
Jason Drake– Grace Performance Chemicals
Jeff Copeland– BASF
We had 3 students participate in the ACI 2nd Annual Meeting Students Research Competition. The winner of the $500 cash prize was Cameron D. Murray from the University of Arkansas. His research paper was on “Controlling Alkali-Silica Reaction in a Harsh Industrial Environment”. Our second student was Magued Barsoum from UALR & third was Richard Deschenes from the University of Arkansas, both with research papers on “ASR”. This was a very close competition & with all 3 student’s having the same topic as their research paper made it that more difficult for the judges to decide on a winner.
Congratulations to all of the students!
Congratulations to all of the winners! We hope you participate again next year!
