MARLBOROUGH, Conn. – The Connecticut Irrigation Contractors Association has announced the recipients of the 2012 Anderson/Hopkins Memorial CICA Scholarship. This year’s recipients are Elizabeth LaMay of Bethany, Nicole Sommavilla, Jr. of Valhalla, New York, Gordon Crean of Fairfield, Jamison Buchanan of Stamford, William Centola of Higganum, and Alysia Marie Collandrea of Guilford.

The scholarship was founded in 2008 in memory of two dedicated members of CICA.

Joseph Hopkins was a member since the CICA’s inception. Hopkins was a store branch manager for Atlantic Irrigation Specialties, Inc. Hopkins served several years on the Board of Directors in the early going helping to shape the future of this association. Hopkins was also the Membership Chair for many years. He did an excellent job in recruiting new members and also on retaining existing members. He will be greatly missed.

Anderson was the second president of this association from 1990-1991 and also co-president from 2004-2007. Anderson served on and chaired many committees during his twenty years involvement in the CICA. His sense of humor and smile will be remembered by all members fortunate enough to have known Anderson.

The scholarships will be awarded on Sunday, July 29 at the CICA Family Day at Lake Compounce, in Bristol, Conn.
