New Scholarship Winner Announcement

Published on October 25, 2019 by Alicia Eckert


Builders License Training Institute has chosen a new scholarship winner! Dawan Lewis applied for our Military Pre-Licensure Training Scholarship, and we are excited to announce this 6-year Army Veteran and Army Achievement Medal recipient as a new student in our Michigan 60-hour pre-license course.

Dawan is a single father of one who is interested in becoming a builder not only to provide for his family, but also to give back to his community. In his outstanding application, Dawan told us that he grew up in Detroit, and that although he left for a while something about it will always feel like home.

As a Detroit native, he wants to be “a part of the team that gives “home” a face lift, and makes it feel like home again”—and pledges to spend a majority of his time as a builder investing in his home town.

We could not be more excited for this new student and soon to be builder—community minded people looking to revitalize a community with their hard work and dedication are surely our kind of people!

Congratulations, Dewan, we hope you will keep us updated on your progress—we are looking forward to great things from you!
