Liam Thompson Receives Pidoca Construction Group Memorial Scholarship from the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies
Cranbrook, BC (November 5, 2020) – The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies is thrilled to announce that Liam Thompson is the recipient of the Pidoca Construction Group Memorial Scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year.
This scholarship was established in memory of Brent McIver, who was born and raised in Cranbrook and graduated from MBSS in 1993. Brent established the Pidoca Construction Group before his 30th birthday and built many attractive, luxurious homes across the Lower Mainland and the East Kootenays. Brent cared about carpentry and expected all carpenters to care about their trade as well. The Pidoca Construction Group Memorial Scholarship is awarded to an inspired Carpenter of Tomorrow who seeks to create something special and stunning with their hands, their minds, and their hearts.
The Pidoca Construction Group Memorial Scholarship benefits an eligible graduate from Mount Baker Secondary School (MBSS), as identified by the MBSS scholarship application process, who is pursuing studies in carpentry at an approved post-secondary institution.
