2017 SITE Global Awards

  • Windsor Neal Crawford, Business Development, Cultivate Premium Gifts:

    Recipient of the prestigious David Riddell Scholarship, a SITE Global scholarship to attend the 2018 Global Forum in Rome, Italy awarded to someone that displays the enthusiasm for our industry and a financial need.
Windsor Crawford

“As a growing professional and future leader, I have had experiences like volunteering as President of SITE Southeast Young Leaders and co-leading a panel at the SITE Young Leader Conference in 2016. The David Riddell scholarship will enable me to further my SITE education and valuable relationships. It is a learning experience I would not have been able to do for myself due to the closure of my previous employer and my new employer’s present budget. Attending the SITE + MPI Global Forum provides me the opportunity to become better educated, make global connections, and be directed and shaped by SITE leaders worldwide. As my career continues to grow, like David Riddell, I aspire to be a mentor to other members of the SITE family and help guide them to become future leaders.”
