The ACE Program engages high school students as a means of encouraging career pursuits in Architecture, Engineering and Construction. This primarily takes place through group and one-on-one mentoring to expose students to real-world opportunities, and financial support through scholarships and grants. John A. Martin & Associates (JAMA) has been involved in ACE for decades, and has been honored as the 2014 Structural Engineering Firm of the Year. JAMA staff celebrated the distinction along with a handful of students from our mentor schools John Marshall High in Los Angeles, and the Applied Technology Center in Montebello, CA. at the ACE Spotlight Awards Gala on February 27th.
