Powers & Sons Construction supports programs and initiatives focused on community partnership, collaboration, and citizen dialog.

Everyone on our team is encouraged to pursue meaningful activities that make a difference in their local communities. Many of us volunteer to serve in civic organizations and we participate in efforts that support youth education and development.


Supporters of the Gary Education & Leadership Alliance since 1983, we have endowed two scholarships:

  1. The Powers & Sons Construction Company Scholarship is awarded to academically strong students who want to major in construction management, construction technology, or civil engineering.
  2. The Leolean Powers Scholarship is awarded based on financial need to academically strong students regardless of college major.

In addition, we funded a Research, International, Service, and Experiential Learning (RISE) Diversity Scholarship with the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). RISE was developed for underrepresented first-generation and financially challenged students.
