AOE Announces Fellowship Recipient

Launched in conjunction with the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Foundation, AOE announced the establishment of the AOE Fellowship in 2021. The fellowship honors Wendy O. Ward, a member of the AOE team for more than 10 years. She passed away at the early age of 32 from breast cancer. During her career, she was known throughout the concrete industry as a leading expert in helping organizations with their marketing and sales efforts. She was an advocate for broadening career opportunities in the concrete industry.

As AOE is committed to re-investing back in the markets we serve, this fellowship is an example of supporting the future of our industry. The educational stipend is available to undergraduate or graduate students pursuing a degree as part of the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program. We are thrilled to announce that the fellowship has been awarded to Matthew Pasemann, a rising junior in the CIM program at Texas State University.


“AOE has been a tremendous partner for the CIM program and the fellowship is an example of their commitment to the industry,” said CIM Marketing Committee Chairman Brian Gallagher. “The fellowship will help ensure students are able to continue their education and fulfill their dream of working in the concrete industry. To help CIM fulfill our mission of advancing the industry by degrees and to ensure we continue to develop the future leaders for the concrete industry, we count on leadership from organizations like AOE. We appreciate their ongoing support and leadership.”


Congratulations Matthew!
