For ten years, Seay, Seay & Litchfield has awarded a yearly endowed scholarship to one student from the College of Architecture at Auburn University for demonstrating strong performance in design studio and academic achievement. This year’s recipient is Margaret Shariett from Decatur, AL. Margaret, in her fifth year at Auburn, is also the recipient of the Alabama Architecture Foundation Scholarship. While completing her BA, she has studied at Istanbul Technical University in Istanbul, Turkey and interned with Schneider & Associates in Huntsville, AL. She is currently studying at the Rural Studio in Greensboro/Newbern, AL and working on the $20K House for which the Rural Studio has been nationally recognized. The design challenge is to build two-bedroom house models that can be built by contractors anywhere in the rural South for only $20,000, including labor. We are excited to see what Margaret and her fellow students create in Hale County. Congratulations Margaret, SSL wishes you success in your final year!
