Tim Tevens Columbus McKinnon Scholarship (Endowed)
This scholarship was created to recognize Timothy Tevens and his service and contributions to Columbus McKinnon Corporation. Tim retired in February 2017 after 26 years of service to the company with 19 of those years having served as CEO. He had a significant impact on the expansion of Columbus McKinnon, including moving into new geographies, the development of new product lines, and the acquisition of key partners which has laid the foundation for the future growth.
