The fifth annual Richard D Stehly Memorial Hockey Game takes place at 7:00 pm on Monday, March 27, at the Dearborn Ice Skating Center in Dearborn, Michigan.
The game is organized by the Greater Michigan Chapter of the American Concrete Institute, and coincides with The institute’s Concrete Convention and Exposition in Detroit this spring, March 26-30.
The Stehly Game is an annual tradition that honors the legacy of former ACI president Dick Stehly. He believed that investing in the association’s youngest members was crucial for the future of the concrete industry and the American Concrete Institute; this conviction lead him to bequest a portion of his estate to fund future ACI Foundation scholarships and fellowships.
Stehly was an avid hockey player, often organizing games for ACI members to participate in during conventions. Upon his passing friends and colleague of Stehly’s decided that the creation of a memorial game to raise funds for student scholarships would be the ideal way to honor his legacy. Last year’s game was sponsored by the Wisconsin Chapter — ACI during The Concrete Convention and Exposition – Spring 2016 in Milwaukee.
“I’m glad to see this event progressing into a formal tradition,” stated Nick Popoff, American Concrete Institute member and organizer of this year’s game.
“Raising money for students and lacing up our skates is the best way to honor Dick. I hope this event can be passed local chapter to local chapter in a spirit of friendly competition.”
Popoff hopes that the local sponsoring chapter for every ACI spring convention will raise more money than the previous sponsoring chapter.
The Greater Michigan Chapter – ACI encourages all who are able to attend come out to support this event. To make sponsorship arrangements for your support, contact either Larry Sutter, Michigan Technological University (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Nick Popoff, St. Mary’s Cement (email@example.com).
The Richard D. Stehly Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually through the ACI Foundation to an outstanding student enrolled in an undergraduate degree program studying concrete with an emphasis on structural design, materials, or construction.
