Congratulations to Brock Schulz, this year’s recipient of the annual Reilly Family Memorial Scholarship, which honors the late owners (Wayne, Patrick, and Emmett Reilly) of the John W. Danforth Company, one of the preeminent and charter members of MCAA. Kevin “Duke” Reilly presented the award during the Awards of Excellence Breakfast at MCAA23 in Phoenix, AZ.

Brock studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nebraska and graduated in May 2023. He was an active member of his MCAA student chapter and served as the Fundraising Chair. Brock has been interning at MCAA Member, MMC Contractors since May 2021 and upon graduation was hired as a full-time Project Engineer.

“I joined MCAA for several reasons. At first it was another way for me to find an internship and get involved. I had been informed of what MCA was by a fellow member. However, after joining I quickly realized how much this organization has to offer. I think a better answer for this question is why I have come back over the last three years as a student member. I have returned to MCA not only for all of the benefits but also for all the opportunities to give back to both my community as well as those who have helped bring me up. I have enjoyed all the volunteering, helping out the younger generations get excited about their futures or giving a relaxing night to our contractors through our wine tasting fundraiser/networking event. The people in this industry have not only helped me open up and branch out as a person but have also led me along a path helping me grow up and become a better and stronger man. I am very appreciative for all MCA has giving me thus far and will do my best to give back as much as possible throughout my future career.”

MCAA and the John R. Gentille Foundation congratulate Brock on this prestigious scholarship and thank John W. Danforth Company for their commitment to supporting students interested in pursuing a career in the mechanical contracting industry.
