Dallas--National Engineers Week is Feb. 22-28, and the Southwestern Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, will highlight the diversity of its people and jobs during the week.
“The Army Corps of Engineers is known as the Nation’s Engineers,” said Brig. Gen. David C. Hill, SWD Commander, “because our nation turns to us to solve both simple and complex engineering issues. We built many of iconic American landmarks like the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, but we also build things close to home, such as locks and dams, and levees and ports. We have a diverse workforce across the full spectrum of science, technology, engineering and math disciplines, and we plan towards the future with our STEM initiatives with local schools and universities.”
DALLAS--Michael C. Sterling, PhD, the chief of the Water Management and Infrastructure Branch, Southwestern Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Dallas, has been named the 2015 Black Engineer of the Year for Professional Achievement (Government Category) during the 29th Annual Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) ceremony in Washington D.C.
DALLAS--February is Black History Month, a time set aside to learn more about the many contributions that black Americans have made to our history, and to celebrate their culture and achievements. It has been officially observed in the United States since 1926, originally during the second week of February to coincide with the birthdates of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.
