ASCE NWA Event Featured with Civil Engineering Magazine

ASCE NWA was featured in the Local News insert of Civil Engineering magazine, the monthly publication sent to all ASCE members. The April notice detailed the branch's recent Day of Training, held on March 16 in Fayetteville. This year's Day of Training was the largest event in the branch's 10-year history, including over 20 sponsors and over 150 attendees.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the branch was able to provide $3000 in scholarships to UA civil engineering students Allyson Richey and Nathan Parnell. This year, due to extraordinary support, the branch also provided a $1500 silver sponsorship for the Mid-Continent Conference hosted by the UA Student Chapter in April.

"It was a blessing to receive the scholarship," said Richey, a senior at UA.

"We were thrilled to be able to support the Student Chapter in this way," said Brandon Rush, ASCE NWA Vice President. "Thanks to our sponsors at the Day of Training, we were able to award scholarships to two outstanding students and help the students put on an outstanding conference."
