K-STATE ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS RECEIVE NATIONAL ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIPS

MANHATTAN -- Three Kansas State University students have earned national scholarships from the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers.

Kelly Griffith, senior in architectural engineering, Manhattan, has received the Alwin B. Newton Scholarship, a one-year scholarship for $3,000; Sean Kolich, senior in architectural engineering, Olathe, received the Willis H. Carrie Scholarship for $10,000 for one year; and Ann Gregg, graduate student in architectural engineering, Overland Park, has received the Frank M. Coda Scholarship, worth $5,000 for one year.

Griffith is the community chair of K-State's student chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers. She also is the fundraising chair for the K-State student chapter of the Illuminating Engineering Society and an active member of Phi Alpha Epsilon, the engineering fraternity. Griffith plans to graduate in December 2009 and hopes to find an engineering job in the design-build discipline in the Kansas City area.

Kolich is currently studying in Costa Rica. He is a member of the K-State Fishing Team and the student chapter of the Illuminating Engineering Society. He plans to graduate from K-State in 2011. He said his ultimate goal would be to work for a company that designs stadiums and arenas.

Gregg has been active in her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, most recently serving as president. She also is the fundraising chair for the K-State student chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers, and she volunteers to help with the annual K-State Telefund to raise money for student scholarships. Gregg would like to pursue a career as a mechanical designer while earning her Professional Engineers certificate and eventually become a project manager.
