Congratulations to Masen Dinklage, this year’s recipient of the annual Reilly Family Memorial Scholarship. John W. Danforth Company, an MCAA member company, established the scholarship to commemorate the memory of its leadership, the Reilly Family. Kevin “Duke” Reilly served as Danforth’s Chairman/CEO. Wayne, Patrick and Emmett Reilly contributed a combined 128 years of commitment and loyalty to their company and the industry. This national scholarship symbolizes the Reillys’ many contributions to the mechanical contracting industry.
Masen, a senior studying Mechanical Engineering at The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has found himself on the College of Engineering dean’s list for the past four years. In addition to his academic achievements, Masen has held three separate student chair positions within his student chapter in which he has organized and coordinated student volunteer work for chapter fundraisers. Masen served as the Golf Chair in 2019, Wine Tasting Chair in 2020, and is currently the Beer Tasting Chair for 2021.
Masen has interned at MCAA member company, The Waldinger Corporation, for the past three years and has absolutely loved his experience. When asked what has drawn him towards a career in the mechanical contracting industry, Masen shared, “I want to be confronted with consistent challenges during my career and it is very evident to me that the mechanical contracting industry will provide new challenges every day. Additionally, I have had the pleasure of meeting many quality people within the mechanical industry. I have a strong desire to continue working with these people and build new relationships throughout my career.”
Masen, MCAA and the John R. Gentille Foundation congratulate you on receiving this prestigious scholarship and look forward to seeing the impact you make within our industry!
Thank you John W. Danforth Company and CEO, Robert Beck, for your commitment to keeping future industry leaders invested in the mechanical contracting industry.
