To honor those who gave their time, U.S. Engineering randomly selected two volunteers and made a $200 donation in their names to the non-profits of their choice. Congratulations to Rebekah Brooks, Senior Administrative Assistant at the National Bio & Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan, KS, and Tal Clark, Associate Vice President of Business Development in the Rocky Mountain region!
Rebekah chose Sunflower CASA Project, Inc., in Manhattan, Kansas, a regional branch of the national organization CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates). CASA is comprised of volunteers who give their time to advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system. Rebekah has supported Sunflower CASA for over five years and has served as Board President since last January. To learn more about Sunflower CASA’s mission and services, click here.
Tal chose the Experimental Aircraft Association (EEA), Rocky Mountain Chapter 301. Tal has been a member of the EEA for a couple of years for the specific purpose of providing first flights to kids ranging from 8-17. As he puts it, “I enjoy providing kids their first small airplane ride to show how STEM principles come to life to make flight possible by allowing them to ‘fly’ my plane.” The EEA also provides scholarships to Denver-area youth attending the EEA Air Academy to help further their aviation education.

Thank you again, U.S. Engineering team members, for your commitment to the community and to Leaving a Legacy in your own ways.
