Pacific Engineering students awarded top CELSOC Scholarship
Each year, the Consulting Engineers and Land Surveyors of California Scholarship & Education Foundation awards scholarships ranging from $1000 to $7500 each to deserving college students.
Congratulations to this year's Top Undergraduate CELSOC Award Winner, Troy Tishammer, Civil/Engineering Management student at Pacific's School of Engineering and Computer Science. Shannon Barcal, Civil/Engineering Management student, was also a recipient of a CELSOC Undergraduate Award. Meet Pacific's award winners:
Troy Tisthammer exemplifies the best of the next generation engineer: a leader in both professional and social contexts. Originally from Forestville, a small town just outside Santa Rosa (CA), he has had responsible roles in a broad range of extracurricular activities including the Pacific University Honors Program, Pacific Christian Fellowship, Associated Engineering Students (AES), American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and several other student societies and clubs.
As an outstanding student, he has also performed undergraduate research and served as student member of a number of University committees. Currently, Troy is on an international co-op work assignment with TSS, Tokyo, Japan.
Shannon Barcal is among the top engineering students at the University of the Pacific. From Granite Bay (CA), Shannon's has excelled in her undergraduate engineering coursework, while actively involved in professional societies (the American Society of Civil Engineers, ASCE, and the American Society for Engineering Management, ASEM), sports (soccer and crew), and social organizations (Delta Delta Delta on-campus sorority).
Her immediate plans are to go on co-op during the 2009 academic year and potentially attend graduate school after graduation.
