O'Brien Jr., president of Salem Stone. Mr. Hamlin, Mr. Harcum and Mr. O'Brien are members of the Virginia Transportation Construction Alliance, which awarded Mr. Morris and Mr. Littauer scholarships.

Two students in the Virginia Tech Mining and Minerals Engineering Department recently won scholarships from the nonprofit industry organization Virginia Transportation Construction Alliance (VTCA).

Joshua Morris, a sophomore from Burkeville, Va., and Jordan Littauer, a senior from Richmond, Va., each received a $1,000 VTCA aggregates scholarship for the 2009-10 academic year. Both are majors in the Mining and Minerals Engineering Department. The students were honored at a recent luncheon at the Inn at Virginia Tech. The gathering was hosted by local aggregates company Salem Stone, and attended by VTCA board members and scholarship committee members.

VTCA serves the contractors, aggregate producers, engineers, suppliers, and service providers who design, build, and maintain Virginia’s transportation network.

VTCA awards scholarships in transportation engineering and contracting, among other areas. It raises scholarship money through golf tournaments, silent auctions, and other events.
