Holcim Inc. has announced Cole Townsend of Ada has been awarded a Gygi and von Wyss Foundation Scholarship.

The $8,000 renewable scholarships are awarded each year to five children of Holcim employees who exhibit extraordinary academic and extracurricular talent. 

The honors were announced earlier this year by the Foundation’s board of directors in Waltham, Mass.
