Stellar Names 2014 University of North Florida scholarship Award Winners

The Stellar Endowed Scholarship is awarded to juniors and seniors in UNF’s Building Construction Management program.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Nov. 17, 2014)—Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, has awarded its 2014 Stellar Endowed Scholarship for the University of North Florida’s Building Construction Management program to Michael Godoy and Jeffrey Pratt.

The annual scholarship provides financial assistance to the program’s junior and senior undergraduate degree candidates. The two recipients were awarded $1,000 each based on criteria including a minimum 3.0 GPA and participation in construction management activities, student clubs or other special projects.

“This scholarship allows Stellar to not only help these two, bright UNF students, but the entire Northeast Florida community as well,” said Allison Korman Shelton, Stellar’s Vice President of Government and Public Affairs. “As the construction sector recovers and grows, so does the need for educated building professionals. By providing these scholarships, we’re able to help meet this rising demand while also assisting two very deserving students.”

Godoy, a native of Belize, graduated with an associates degree in architecture and civil engineering from the University   of Belize in 2011. In 2013, one year after moving to the United States, Godoy was accepted into UNF’s Building Construction Management program. He is currently pursuing his bachelor’s degree in construction management with plans to obtain his general contractor license and a MBA in finance. Outside of the classroom, Godoy builds homes with Beaches Habitat for Humanity, dedicating four hours a week to the organization.

Raised in Batesville, Indiana, Pratt joined the Navy in 2005 and served as a Machinist’s Mate for seven years. He maintained large ship propulsion plants and was stationed on the USS Blue Ridge in Japan for three years. Pratt returned to school to pursue a career in construction. While in school, Pratt also works with a commercial construction general contractor primarily involved in large tilt wall projects. After graduation, Pratt plans to take a project management path in commercial construction.
