Cleveland, OH — The Marble Institute of America has awarded its Natural Stone Scholarship Award to Alberto Garcia, a maintenance mechanic and fabricator for Castle Rock Marble and Granite, Inc. of the Bronx, NY.
Garcia’s selection was based on an essay explaining his commitment to the natural stone industry and why he desires to continue his career in it, according to the Cleveland, OH-based MIA.
The scholarship covered travel expenses to the StonExpo 2007 trade show in Las Vegas.
“The MIA is excited to recognize Mr. Garcia’s commitment to the natural stone industry,” said Gary Distelhorst, executive v.p. “The intent of the MIA Natural Stone Scholarship Award is to provide educational opportunities for aspiring natural stone professionals, and the opportunity to expand one’s knowledge.”
The MIA is the world’s leading resource and advocate for the natural dimension stone industry.
