Rashad Johnson, 2020 Build Our Future Scholarship recipient, was selected to participate in Clayco’s highly competitive college internship program this summer. He is currently interning and being mentored by Matthew Drobak, EIT on the Edge West project.

Rashad is well on his way to becoming a civil engineer and will be taking classes at Washington University in St. Louis as part of the Wash U/UMSL Joint Engineering program this fall.

“Being a part of the CCDI program this past year has been a complete blessing.” Rashad said, “I have not only been shown the vast opportunities and pathways in the construction industry, but I have been warmly welcomed, loved and treated with respect by everyone in the program. CCDI helped me to get an internship at Clayco two summers in a row. This opportunity has allowed me to gain real-world, hands on experience in my future career as a civil engineer. I’m proud to be a part of a program and intern with a company that is advocating for change in the construction industry while helping our community grow and prosper.”

Keep working hard towards achieving your goals, Rashad! We’ll be here to the finish line!
