Students meet weekly with a mentor to learn about design and construction career opportunities and work on real-world projects.
Barge Design Solutions’ contribution will help provide a $3,000 scholarship to a student pursuing an ACE-related field of study post-graduation.
Caitlin Moffitt, a Barge Design Solutions employee and former ACE student, currently serves on Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia Chapter’s Board of Directors and as a civil engineer mentor. Tyler Gross and Ben Nemec, of Barge Design Solutions volunteer as civil engineer mentors.
