Rising Stars in Civil + Structural Engineering recognizes younger professionals whose exceptional technical capability, leadership ability, effective teaching or research, or public service has benefited the civil or structural engineering professions, their employers, project owners, and society.
Megan was overcome with emotion and pride:
“Walking across the stage to receive the Rising Star award created a moment filled with a strange mix of incredulity, joy, gratitude, and not a little bit of nervousness. So many family members, teachers, friends, and co-workers have invested in and supported me throughout my engineering career (even before I knew I wanted to be one!). This moment validated that I’ve started paying forward the investments others made in me. I hope people are inspired by the achievements and causes of ALL of the other Rising Stars. I hope they will also apply themselves passionately to what they do and cultivate the generations who follow after them. I’m honored to be in such esteemed company and thank God and the people He’s blessed my life with for everything they’ve done.”
