Legacy of Pride
We are particularly proud of our affiliation with the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Michigan and its summer intern program. The late Harry L. “Bud” Conrad, Jr., president of The Christman Company from 1960 to 1984, together with Curt Bottum of Townsend & Bottum, founded the AGC summer intern program in 1964 for civil engineering (and, later, construction management) students at Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, Ferris State College (now Ferris State University), and Michigan Technological University. This involved setting up a summer work intern program with students for the 10-week summer term with funding from the AGC Education Program and initial guidelines for employment with base pay and school grant/fellowship for each student. This was the first program of its kind in the country.
To date, the program has benefited over 500 students. Mr. Conrad was also instrumental in the establishment of the AGC of Michigan Educational Endowment fund in 1985, which designated a perpetual scholarship award in his name since 2003. Over the past 20 years, more than $100,000 has been awarded to 61 students. Currently, four scholarships worth $2,500 each are awarded each year. These programs have helped to launch the careers of hundreds of quality construction managers throughout Michigan.
