Engineering students honored for living School’s eight values

Sixteen students were honored for living out eight engineering values at the School of Engineering‘s second annual awards reception held Monday. The awards recognized second- and third-year engineering majors who best represent the School’s values of community, professionalism, ownership, relevance, resilience, ethics, excellence and service.

“Our eight engineering values are the attributes that we want to see reflected in our Campbell Engineering graduates,” said founding Engineering Dean Jenna Carpenter. “It is always a joy to read the nominations from fellow students who see their peers living out these values every day.”

Awardees were nominated by their fellow students, faculty and staff. The reception is held in conjunction with St. Patrick’s Day each year, as St. Patrick is the patron saint of engineering. According to the American Mechanical Engineering Society, St. Patrick received a Roman education, which meant he was familiar with the Roman concepts of engineering, which were quite advanced for his day. He used this knowledge to help build many of the early churches in Ireland.

Awardees this year included:
  • Community: Alex Lipscomb, mechanical engineering, and Anna Jones, chemical engineering
  • Professionalism: Katie Sentes, chemical engineering, and Josh Romero, Mechanical Engineering
  • Ownership: Joshua Brewer, mechanical engineering, and Matthew Schultz, mechanical engineering
  • Relevance: Dylan Gooch, chemical engineering, and Kendell Mayo, mechanical engineering
  • Resilience: Taylor Oakley, chemical engineering, and Fernando Clemente, chemical engineering
  • Ethics: Valerie York, mechanical engineering, and Will Strader, chemical engineering
  • Excellence: Uriah Coleman, mechanical engineering, and Matthew Coulter, mechanical engineering
  • Service: Christian Ruesch, mechanical engineering, and Rachael Plasters, chemical engineering
