Senator Anthony Cannella (R – Ceres) joined representatives from the American Council of Engineering Companies, California earlier this month to recognize an aspiring engineering student from California State University, Fresno State.
Linda Lim, a third-year undergraduate student with an emphasis in Structural and Transportation Studies, is one of eleven recipients of the 2018-2019 ACEC California Scholarship Foundation Awards. Ms. Lim was presented with a certificate from Senator Cannella at the Senator’s district office in Ceres, California. In addition to pursuing her undergraduate degree, Ms. Lim is also currently working on two research papers alongside Dr. Aly Tawfik: the first is estimating the future costs of shared autonomous vehicles; and the other on evaluating California’s current road infrastructure.
In a statement congratulating all of the scholarship award recipients, Senator Cannella said, “I am a proud member of the engineering industry, and I am encouraged that the next generation of intelligent, promising engineers are dedicating their time and effort to complete their degrees and start a career in this noble profession. The students receiving these scholarships from ACEC are certainly the pride of California.”
Also, during the small commemoration, Mike Cooper – 2018 ACEC California President and, senior project manager at Mark Thomas – recognized Senator Cannella as ACEC California’s 2017 Legislator of the Year for his outstanding service and representation of the engineering profession. Mr. Cooper was joined by his ACEC California colleagues: Jason Paul of Blackburn Consulting, Henry Liang of MKN Associates, Mike Auchter of Teter, and Bill Wagner of HMH.
