Many thanks for participating in the third annual GRPS Academy for Design & Construction (ADC) 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament held Saturday, March 7, at the Innovation Central High School Gym!   We had another excellent turnout for this event and I'm pleased and proud to announce that we raised $10,000 for the ADC program to be used for scholarships and supporting curriculum activities.  In addition we were able to award gift certificates to four student volunteers for the half-time shooting contest, but unfortunately the $1,000 "half court bonus shot" scholarships went unclaimed.

All of the teams that participated in this year's tournament represented their company very well.  ADC students saw the construction & design industries as a group of professionals who play hard and who exhibit great sportsmanship. Congratulations to tournament champion Feyen Zylstra, and runner-up Erhardt Construction!

It was wonderful to see the ADC students so engaged in this project - we had over 40 student volunteers participating in a variety of activities and it appeared a great time was had by all.  We plan to continue with this event again next year and will be in touch to determine if you'd like to participate.

Below is a link to your team photo, and many photos of the event including half-time activities and individual team play.  We hope your company enjoys these photos as a special memento of a very special day. These photos are yours to download and use. Also, the photographer onsite produced a video highlight reel. Please see the links below:





Again, many thanks to you, GRPS and the ADC for your participation and involvement - we all appreciate your continued support, dedication and commitment to this very worthy program.
