UE Engineering Explorer Post (2012 - 2014)

In October of 2012, I became a co-leader for an Engineering Explorers post at UE.  The local Boy Scouts of America (BSA) office administers the Learning for Life Corporation Explorers program.  The program was open to local high school students and meet at UE on Monday nights every third week.  We offered hands-on activities that introduced the students to career options in engineering.

RIP Prof. Gerhart & Prof. Taylor

"If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."

The year 2017 has seen the passing of two great mentors.  Phil Gerhart was my Dean at the University of Evansville.  Larry Taylor was Director of the Planetary Geosciences Institute at the University of Tennessee.  Both were wonderful mentors at different points in my life and are greatly missed.
