Roy J. Pallardy Memorial Scholarship Awarded
AIA Mid-Missouri awarded the 2015 Roy Pallardy Memorial Scholarship to Andrew Henry of Centralia, Missouri during Awards Celebration on October 23rd. The scholarship award totaled $2,000 with $1,000 coming from the local chapter's dues and Scholarship Trust Fund and $1,000 coming from a matching grant provided by the National AIA organization.
The annual scholarship was established in 1985 by the Mid-Missouri Chapter AIA to recognize Roy J. Pallardy's outstanding service to the profession, community and AIA Mid-Missouri Chapter, while practicing architecture in Central Missouri.
The matching grant is the national American Institute of Architects' effort to support local Chapters in promoting the profession and providing student financial support to emerging leaders in the architectural field of study.
Andrew is currently enrolled in his fifth year of architectural studies towards a Master of Architecture degree from Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, with anticipated graduation in May, 2016. He is currently participating in the "Design + Make" studio, a two-semester studio during which the elite group of fifth-year students design a project and then build it. Their project this year is an education pavilion in the Tallgrass Prarie.
