Montgomery Branch Presents

On May 8, 2018, the Montgomery Branch presented their annual scholarship to a very deserving student from the River Region. Mr. James Blake Deaton from Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School in Montgomery, Alabama was the recipient of the $1500 dollar scholarship. Mr. Deaton plans to enroll at Auburn University this fall and major in Civil Engineering.

One of the greatest opportunities that we have as Professional Civil Engineers is to get to impact the future of our profession through engagement with high school students. We are very thankful to the industry partners who have provided sponsorships to the branch to make this special occasion occur!
