Christopher Reseigh Honorarium Scholarship

About CMAA Oregon Chapter Scholarships
 
The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Oregon Chapter awards a limited number of scholarships to qualified students to help them defray the costs of pursuing a degree in Construction Management or a related-degree program.  The amounts of the scholarships vary from year to year, but typically average $1,000.  
 
Chris Reseigh is a CMAA Fellow who served for 15 years as president of Parsons Brinckerhoff Construction Services, Inc. There, he led the firm to its consistent ranking as one of ENR’s national top-10 construction management companies.  Chris’ career was highlighted by many marquee projects that included the cable stayed Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa, Florida; the Florida Turnpike; the (first) Second Avenue Subway in New York City; the MARTA system in Atlanta, GA; the General Motors engineering facilities in Flint Rock, MI; and the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport, VA.  
 
Throughout his career and into retirement, Chris tirelessly donated his time to advance the construction industry.  He always found time to mentor and guide more junior employees and to support their success.  Chris’ many contributions included serving as board member for CMAA, the CMAA Foundation, the ASCE Construction Institute, Bridges to Prosperity; and as a mentor under the ACE Mentoring program in Washington, DC.  
 
Initial funding for this honorarium began with a significant donation from a CMAA Oregon Chapter founding member and chapter president who had the good fortune to work under Chris Reseigh for many years at Parsons Brinckerhoff.  It is the wish of the donor that recipients display a passion for construction, a love of projects, a demonstrated record of excellence and a willingness to give back to the industry.
