THREE K-STATE ENGINEERING STUDENTS RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF HEATING, REFRIGERATING AND AIR-CONDITIONING ENGINEERS
MANHATTAN -- Three Kansas State University engineering students are recipients of prestigious scholarships from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.
The K-State recipients include Jacob Wagner, sophomore in mechanical engineering, Manhattan, $10,000 Reuben Trane Scholarship for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years; Sean Kolich, senior in architectural engineering, Olathe, $10,000 Reuben Trane Scholarship for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years; and Andrea Gregg, senior in architectural engineering, Overland Park, and president of K-State's student chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, $5,000 Willis H. Carrier Scholarship for the fall 2010 semester.
The K-State students received their scholarships at a recent meeting of the society's Kansas City chapter. The scholarships were awarded for their scholastic and leadership abilities, work ethic and character. Recipients also were selected by the society based on their potential service to the heating, ventilation, air-conditioning or refrigeration industry and the individual's overall need for the scholarship.
Wagner said his current interest for his future profession is to work in the refrigeration research and design industry. Kolich said he hopes to some day work as a mechanical designer assisting a consulting engineering firm in designing sports venues. Gregg anticipates working as a mechanical designer for a consulting engineering firm, and eventually becoming a project manager after completion of the professional engineering exam.
All three recipients said that they were grateful for the support and recognition given to them by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.
According to Gregg, not only are the scholarships a scholastic achievement for the students, but they also show the excellence of K-State's College of Engineering.
"K-State has a great engineering college, and it shows as three K-State students received American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers scholarships," she said. "I believe this also reflects greatly on K-State to have national recognition for its students' achievements."
