Farmington Hills, Mich. (March 31, 2017) Further cementing its place as a staple event during ACI's annual Spring Convention and Exposition, the fifth annual Stehly Memorial Hockey Game took place this past week in Detroit, MI, USA. The game raised funds for the ACI Foundation Richard D. Stehly Memorial Fellowship and honored former ACI President Richard "Dick" Stehly. Stehly was an avid hockey player and staunch advocate for ACI's youngest members, even bequeathing part of his estate to help fund ACI Foundation Student Fellowships and Scholarships. The game raised over $5000, more than doubling last year’s contributions.
The 2017 edition of the Stehly Memorial Hockey Game saw the St. Paul Stehlys outlast the Minneapolis Richards by a score of 5-4, securing the Stehly Memorial Cup for the second consecutive year. ACI members and staff comprised the rosters for both teams. "Participating in my first Stehly Memorial Hockey Game combined my love for the sport with the goal of raising money for worthy student scholarships," stated David Hollingsworth, a member of the Greater Michigan Chapter – ACI, ACI Fellow, and winger for the St. Paul Stehlys. "It was an evening to remember with ACI staff and fellow ACI members. A special thank you is extended to Nick Popoff and Larry Sutter for organizing this year's event."
The Richard D. Stehly Fellowship is awarded annually through the ACI Foundation to an outstanding student enrolled in an undergrad degree program studying concrete with an emphasis on structural design, materials, or construction. More information about the Foundation’s Fellowships and Scholarships can be found at www.ACIFoundation.org.The sixth edition of the Stehly Memorial Hockey Game is projected to take place next March during ACI’s 2018 Spring Concrete Convention and Exposition in Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Three councils make up the ACI Foundation: the Strategic Development Council, committed to resolving the issues of new technology acceptance within the concrete industry; the Concrete Research Council, which funds and assists in the research of new concrete technologies; and the Scholarship Council, which facilitates student fellowships and scholarships.
