Clyde Scott Award Recipients

Clyde Scott was the President of Empire Roofing, Inc., Chicago for many years. He was involved with several other industry associations that influenced the Chicagoland Roofing and Waterproofing Industry. Clyde’s “Unique and immeasurable dedication to the Chicago Roofing Contractors Association and the Roofing Industry”, warranted naming the award for him. A Clyde Scott Award is rewarded to a person who has influenced the Roofing and Waterproofing Industry throughout their many years of service. This is not an annual award, but one given when a person deserving the award is chosen by the CRCA Awards Committee.
