Home News Eduardo Martinez awarded Bruce Newbrough Memorial Scholarship

Aliquippa, Pa.—Eduardo Martinez has received the Bruce Newbrough Memorial Certified Installation Manager Program (CIM) Scholarship. Martinez is a project manager with Martinez Carpet Installations. The scholarship is provided in partnership with FCICA and ARDEX Americas.

“I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t near my dad working with floors,” Martinez said. “I have tried my best to follow in his footsteps, always having my share of failures I continue to move forward with those lessons. I’m a third-generation installer and very passionate about what I do. This isn’t a job to me, it’s a lifelong mission to promote trades and trade education as an honest and great choice for any young man or woman trying to decide their future. I am absolutely grateful for the opportunity to become a CIM.”

The Bruce Newbrough Memorial Scholarship assists with the costs associated with the entire Certified Installation Manager (CIM) program, including application, content and assessment fees. The scholarship was created to honor Bruce Newbrough, an ARDEX director of technical services and later applications development, with a passion for advancing the flooring industry through education.

Applications for the scholarship are accepted throughout the year. To apply, visit: fcica.com/CIM
