In 2007, the Edgar M. Jolley Memorial Scholarship was established to assist eligible children of employees in completing their education. The scholarship rewards students who embody the spirit of EMJ’s servant leadership culture through their service to their peers and communities. The fund provides an opportunity for students who excel in both academics and community involvement. This year, EMJ awarded the scholarship to the following deserving recipients.
Emma Folsom, daughter of Brad Folsom, Senior Preconstruction Manager, EMJ Construction Southeast. Emma is entering her sophomore year at Lee University where she is pursuing a degree in exercise science with an emphasis in pre-athletic training. She intends to seek a Master of Athletic Training degree.
Eli Wash, son of Jay Wash, Superintendent, EMJ Construction Southeast. He has had a very busy post-classroom season working with his dad as well as a local Chattanooga company, Rocky Top Excavation. Eli will be attending Southern Adventist University in the upcoming fall semester to complete his degree in the Physical Therapy Assistant program. As he completes his final coursework, lab work for local care providers, and sits for state board exams he is looking forward to seeing what types of facilities and work will be most personally rewarding.
Andrew Crissman, son of Philip and Faith Crissman, Senior Project Superintendent and Project Coordinator respectively, EMJ Construction Southwest. Andrew graduated from Timber Creek High School in Fort Worth, Texas where he studied architecture. For the next two years,
