The Oldcastle APG Memorial Scholarship

The APG Memorial Scholarship originated in 2005 after the sudden loss of Marty Sedwick, GM of Sierra Building Products. In remembrance of Marty’s passion for Oldcastle APG & his coworkers, his zest for life, love of family & friends, and commitment to education for all children, including those with learning disabilities, Oldcastle APG established the Marty Sedwick Memorial Scholarship Fund. Since Marty’s passing, there have been other members of the Oldcastle APG Family who are no longer with us and should be remembered. The APG Memorial Scholarship is to honor all of those who have positively impacted our lives and inspired us all.
