Klimes Named a 2019 IBS Scholarship Recipient

Congratulations to Kameron Klimes of McCray Lumber and Millwork for being named IBS 2019 Scholarship winner. Klimes is one of 21 future industry leaders who were selected to receive a scholarship to attend the 2019 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS), as part of our IBS Scholarship Program for NAHB members between the ages of 21-35.

Kameron got his start in the trades as an apprentice carpenter in his hometown of St. Louis. In
2015, he committed to a year of service as an AmeriCorps National member with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City. After his service, he stayed with Habitat as a construction supervisor. Through a generous lumber donation to his jobsite Kameron was introduced to McCray Lumber & Millwork. The opportunity presented itself to join McCray Lumber as an outside sales rep, and he made the leap.

Though he no longer wears a tool belt, Kameron enjoys the visceral connection he has to his work. To see the jobs he supplies go from a stack of material to a usable space keeps him motivated.
