Established in 1996, The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress was founded with the goal of improving the roofing industry through research, education and technology. Now, 13 years later, the Alliance is working harder than ever to accomplish and expand on this goal.
During the past year, the Alliance launched a new scholarship program, created a charitable initiative to reach out to roofing workers in need and continued work on various important roofing industry research projects. And these are only some of the exciting things the Alliance accomplished during 2008 and has planned for 2009.
During 2008, the Alliance continued its commitment to education through its Roofing Industry Scholarship Program, providing $1,000 to three students: Jennifer Baxter of Carthage, Tenn.; Brittany Cook of Naperville, Ill.; and Jason Hartman of Nashville, Tenn.
