Southampton grad earns building and trades scholarship

Southampton High School Class of 2023 graduate Ulises Munguia has earned the 2023 Construction Career Charitable Fund Award.

The Fund, founded by three local construction business owners and funded through generous donations, is granted to students with diverse backgrounds as they pursue careers in the various trades within the construction industry.

Munguia earned the initial award upon graduation and was recently presented with an additional monetary scholarship after six months of successful employment as an electrician at G. Craig Electrical Contracting in Southampton. He will be awarded the final portion of the monetary scholarship after a year on the job.

While enrolled at Southampton High School, Munguia was involved in the school’s construction program.

In addition to financial support, the fund helps students secure jobs in their fields of interest and learn new skills. Southampton High School students interested in the award will have the opportunity to apply following a field trip to a job site where they can learn more about the trades.
