President's Report

Christopher NyeCentral Ohio  Section Members:

The May luncheon was a great event that included induction of the 2018-2019 Board members, presentation of Life Member certificates, and presentation of the “Outstanding Section Member” and “Outstanding Civil Engineer” awards. Congratulations to everyone for these achievements!

Please review our entire May newsletter for information on upcoming events, including webinars, golf outing, and Columbus Crew outing. We are in need of a volunteer to serve as Newsletter Editor, so please contact Brooks Vogel if you are interested.

As I conclude my term as Section President, I want to extend my sincere thanks to the ASCE Central Ohio members and leaders for their mentorship and support during my tenure on the Board. Not only am I leaving the Board, but I have recently moved to Cleveland, Ohio, so am also leaving the Central Ohio Section. A special thanks to Peter Narsavage and Brooks Vogel for stepping into Board positions next year to help ease the transition.

Best wishes to you all and have a safe and healthy summer!

Dream Big!

The acclaimed giant-screen documentary Dream Big: Engineering Our World has inspired and delighted audiences in museums around the world.

Now, ASCE with generous support from the United Engineering Foundation (UEF) has set an ambitious goal: to put a copy of the Dream Big film and educational toolkit in every public school in America.

To reach every school, we need your help!

Give $5 to send the school of your choice a toolkit containing:

  1. A DVD of the full-length feature film in English, French, Spanish and closed captioned, licensed for educational screenings only
  2. The complete teacher’s guide
  3. All companion videos
  4. Downloadable files for classroom use

Use the search box at the top the https://www.engineersdreambig.org/ webpage to locate a public school.

If you cannot find the school you are looking for, it may have already been chosen as a recipient by someone else. Please consider making a contribution to a general fund for schools still in need.
