    PRINCESS ANNE, MD-Wayne K. Evans, president of Evans Builders Inc. of Salisbury, has made a $2,500 gift to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and its Construction Management Technology (CMT) Program.  The donation will provide scholarships for CMT students to purchase books and enable students and faculty to attend conferences and workshops.

    "My son, Lance, is a sophomore in the program and my senior vice president, Kai Schrodt, is a UMES (construction management) graduate," said Evans.  "I'm impressed with the quality of the program and its graduates."

    "I want to thank Mr. Evans on behalf of the students and faculty of the Construction Management Technology Program for his generous gift," said Dr. Leon Copeland, chair of the Department of Technology at UMES.  "During periods of state funding decreases, private gifts of support are needed to provide resources to enhance our program."

    Evans Builders, established in 1951 with offices in Salisbury, Md., and Wilson, N.C., provides commercial, industrial, general contractor and construction management services to customers in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and North and South Carolina. Its construction projects range from fully managed turn-key operations to retrofitting and re-roofing of existing structures.
