Engineering seniors awarded scholarships

By Mary Rankin

Three Kansas State University seniors in engineering have each been awarded a $1,000 general scholarship from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Kansas.

Arrin Tieben, Dodge City, is majoring in civil engineering; and Austin Eck, Overland Park, and Kati Benton, St. Augustine, Florida, are both architectural engineering majors.

Applicants were required to provide information to the council scholarship committee on their university, work experience and extracurricular activities, as well as write an essay on "Describe how consulting engineers make their community a better place to live both technically and socially."

The American Council of Engineering Companies is a federation of 52 state and regional councils representing more than 600,000 engineers, architects, land surveyors and other specialists. Its primary mission is to strengthen the business environment for member firms through government advocacy, political action and business education.
