The NSSGA has selected Ian Reynolds, rising senior at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, as the recipient of the 2016 Barry K. Wendt Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was awarded by NSSGA’s Manufacturers and Services Devision. It is presented annually to an outstanding college student who plans to pursue a career in the aggregate industry.

“Ian’s keen interest in our industry made him stand out in this year’s field of very well-qualified applicants,” said Rich Deister, chairman of the M&S Division. “The M&S Division is proud to award Ian the 2016 Barry K. Wendt Scholarship, and we’re excited to see what he will accomplish in our industry.”Reynolds, who has worked in several quarries including a recent co-op with NSSGA member Mississippi Lime Company, is pursuing a degree in Mining Engineering with an emphasis on quarrying. “Being a part of this operation has been a great learning experience and has given me a chance to work with many of the mine engineers and take on my first projects with a significant amount of responsibility,” Reynolds wrote in his application. He is the vice president of his school’s student chapter of NSSGA and has participated in the NSSGA/SME Student Design Competition. After graduating, Reynolds hopes to work in an underground aggregates operation.
