Meet Gavin Shaw

Winner of the 2023 Roger Graham Scholarship Fund

Congratulations, Gavin! We are thrilled to recognize your outstanding achievements and commitment to your education. The Roger Graham Scholarship Fund, named in honor of our beloved CraneWerks family member, aims to support local high school seniors heading to trade schools. We are proud to award you with a $2,000.00 check towards your schooling.

Gavin’s determination and drive have already set him on an impressive path. As a 2023 graduate from Southwestern High School, he has taken charge of his future by enrolling in prerequisite classes at Ivy Tech this summer, kickstarting his career journey. But that’s just the beginning of his remarkable story.

This young dynamo wears many hats – caretaker of his siblings, a skilled CNC machinist, custom fabricator, car detailer, welder, and programmer. It’s clear that hard work and a sharp mind are second nature to Gavin. His dedication to his craft and thirst for knowledge make him an exceptional candidate for this scholarship.

Let’s give a big round of applause to Gavin Shaw, the recipient of the prestigious 2023 Roger Graham Scholarship Fund!

We would like to extend our gratitude to Gavin’s assistant principal and soccer coach, Mr. Taylor Meredith, for recommending him for this esteemed award. Additionally, Gavin recognizes the invaluable guidance of Mike Kyle, who has been instrumental in shaping his machine knowledge.

While Gavin’s talents and accomplishments are awe-inspiring, he also knows the importance of a balanced life. When asked about his hobbies, he shared a contagious laugh and mentioned his love for making money and learning how to become better at it. Recently, he has even ventured into the world of investing, showing his passion for economics and financial literacy.

Gavin, your ambition, work ethic, and dedication make it clear that you are on the right path to a bright and successful future. We are immensely proud to support you in your educational endeavors and excited to see the great things you will achieve.
