Arkansas Chapter of American Society of Professional Estimators


Established: 1999

Bill Satzler, President of the Arkansas Chapter 33 of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE) in 1999, created an endowed scholarship in order to help construction management students who need assistance.   In September, 2000, JBU's Construction Management department was presented with a large check for winning the ASPE Mock Bid Competition.  This check was added to the existing scholarship fund.

After receiving the ASPE check, Jim Caldwell said, "JBU is very fortunate to have the support of ASPE.  This scholarship will help encourage our students to pursue a career in the field of construction cost estimating and to participate in professional organizations.  ASPE promotes many of the same ideals that we do at JBU, especially in the area of ethics in bidding for projects."  ASPE has continued to add gifts which continues to increase this scholarship.
