NC State Partnership Funds Student Scholarships
As a partner firm located on North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus, Freese and Nichols is proud to support students at the university. Supporting students and future leaders through community outreach and professional service is a passion shared by employees across our firm and has been practiced since our founding.
Each year, Freese and Nichols partners with the NC State Engineering Foundation to fund a series of awards given to exceptional students and faculty. In addition to our support of undergraduate and graduate students, Freese and Nichols sponsors a number of other NC State activities, including the Water Resources and Environmental Engineering Student Research Symposium, Faculty Early Career Development Awards and the Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Department annual golf tournament.
In recognition of our support for the university, North Carolina Division Manager Mike Wayts was recently appointed to a four-year term on the Industry Advisory Board in NC State’s CCEE Department. The two goals of this board are to serve as an advisory group and advocate for the CCEE Department.
The university selected this year’s student award recipients, who visited our office on the NC State campus in April. We are pleased to announce (starting second from the left, pictured above):
- Morgan Westbrook, recognized for Humanities
- Yon Soo Lee, recognized for Citizenship and Service
- Leah-Craig Fleming, recognized for Leadership
- Jacob Monroe, recognized for Scholarly Achievement
Congratulations to these students on their achievements! View student bios
