Former Colorado Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (CSSGA) Board President, Gayle Lyman, was dedicated to supporting students pursuing degrees in or applicable to the aggregate, construction management, or mining industries. The leadership of CSSGA is honored to award scholarships to two students for the 2016-2017 academic year in Mr. Lyman’s honor. Read on for details of the two students academic pursuits.
Kathy Junglen: Kathy is a current employee of CSSGA associate member Tetra Tech. She is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Engineering for Developing Communities at the Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities at the University of Colorado Boulder. She plans to utilize this degree to gain knowledge and experience in the areas of civil engineering and project/construction management. More specifically she will use her degree to gain necessary skills and knowledge to better design civil engineering infrastructure, and consider construction feasibility and appropriate materials in design.
Neil Vlier-Kraus: Neil’s parents are both employed by Engineering Analytics, a CSSGA associate member. Neil is majoring in Civil Engineering Technology at Metropolitan State University of Denver. He plans to use his civil engineering degree as a project designer as well as an on-site project manager. His goal is to be viewed as an engineer who is able to focus on building and project design while also understanding the processes necessary to complete projects safely and up to standard.
Again we congratulate this year’s Gayle Lyman Memorial Scholarship recipients!
