In an awards ceremony held each spring, the Connecticut Heating & Cooling Contractors Association (CHCC) and its sponsors, provide an opportunity for 11 scholarship recipients, one junior student from each of the eleven Connecticut Technical High Schools with an HVAC program, plus an additional overall winner.
The mission of the CHCC is to strengthen and further trade relations, attract, educate and train necessary manpower, represent members at all levels of Government and review and establish quality standards and procedure.
This scholarship is designed to enhance the educational and workforce opportunities available to the students of Connecticut while providing incentive to stay in the trade.
In 2010, the CHCC announced the official change in name of the scholarship, in honor of industry leader and lifetime member Timothy G. Davenport, The Tim Davenport Memorial Scholarship presented by The Connecticut Heating & Cooling Contractors Association.
Tim Davenport was one of the three founding partners of SASCO and CASCO. System Aire Supply Company was established in 1980 and Control Aire Supply Company followed in 1985. Tim entered the wholesale business in 1973; he was a charter member of the Connecticut Heating & Cooling Contractors Association in 1972 and a staunch supporter throughout his life. Tim served on the CHCC Board of Directors and as Education Committee, Chairman. He was an avid supporter of the Connecticut Technical High School System and a dedicated advocate for Education in the HVAC Field. Tim went above and beyond to assist apprentices and techs to advance and excel in the trade – he pushed contractors to subscribe to a higher standard of doing business and continually pushed to raise the bar for the industry.
In 2010 the industry buried this remarkable leader, devoted advocate, great friend. The CHCC will continue the celebration of Tim’s life as the association continues to advance and advocate for the betterment and growth of the industry as well as for education within the trade.
