Peter H. Schrader, our founder and CEO, was educated in Scotia- Glenville schools, graduating from Scotia-Glenville High School before going on to pursue higher education. Peter went on to college, leaving early to serve his country in the Navy. Once Peter had completed his service to the Navy, he returned to Glenville to start working in construction with his brother. Eventually Peter went on to work for himself in 1973, honing his craft through the years. Now Schrader and Company has earned an indisputable state and national reputation for unparalleled craftsmanship and design in remodeling projects.
In addition to his role at Schrader & Company, Peter has taken an active role as a leader in our community. From
conducting classes for local Continuing Education Programs, to leading career awareness training workshops for high school students, Peter has represented his industry with a dignity that has set the standards for others in the industry to follow.
At Schrader & Company we are deeply committed to supporting the future of our industry. We have set up the Peter H. Schrader Construction Industry Scholarship to help a high school senior from Scotia-Glenville High School who wishes to pursue a career in construction or related field. The recipient of the $500 scholarship will be chosen by the High School Scholarship committee headed by the Principal.
