Marion, IN (PRWEB) October 28, 2015
Advanced Cabinet Systems, a plastic laminate casework manufacturer based in Marion, Indiana, announces today a partnership with the nationally recognized ACE Mentor Program of America, Inc. The ACE Program is located in over 200 U.S. cities and the goal is to give high school students real world experience and interactions with professionals from all facets of the Architectural, Construction, and Engineering industries. Last year the local ACE Indianapolis affiliate awarded over $55,000.00 in scholarships to deserving Indianapolis-area. Nationally, the ACE Mentor Program has awarded over $14 million in scholarships since its inception. (ACE nationally is celebrating 20 years, ACE Indy will be 10 this spring)
“At ACS we recognize a serious skills gap developing across the country which is a big reason we decided to stand behind this program” says David Fryman, Director of Business & Dealer Development for ACS. David continues to say that Advanced Cabinet Systems has become involved in a big way by investing in ACE both monetarily and with a mentor.
ACS firmly believes that working with good organizations and partnering with quality people is what will make the difference not only in our business, projects and partnerships, but also the community.
“We are grateful to have David Fryman and the ACS team connected with the ACE Mentorship Program” says Kay Townsend; a member of the Board of Directors for the ACE Mentorship Program and Director of Higher Education at Synthesis Incorporated, a local architectural firm in Indianapolis, Indiana. “I’ve worked with David & ACS for several years. Their willingness to donate their time and resources to our program is invaluable, and it will help us build a stronger foundation for the local design and construction industry’s futures here in Indianapolis” says Kay.
