TFMoran Sponsors American Society of Civil Engineers’ New Hampshire Scholarship Golf Outing

On August 21st, 2020, the American Society of Civil Engineers New Hampshire Section (ASCE-NH) hosted their 2020 Annual Scholarship Golf Outing. The scholarship program was started in 2000 to encourage high school students to pursue an engineering degree (in any discipline, not just civil).  Annually, ASCE-NH awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors and civil engineering students at the University of New Hampshire, with the value of the scholarship’s dependent on the success of their fund raising.  ASCE-NH issued a record $20,000 in scholarships in 2020 and is hoping to at least match that effort in 2021.

The tournament was held at the Beaver Meadow Golf Club in Concord, NH. Due to Covid-19, special precautions were observed promoting social distancing and mask use which resulted in a safe and fun day for all those that participated.  The tournament included a continental breakfast, shotgun start, lunch, raffle, contests, and games. TFMoran Senior Project Manager and ASCE-NH Treasurer, Nick Golon played in the tournament this year and came home with a new golf club courtesy of the raffle.  The TFM Team didn’t finish first but scored a rare Eagle (two under par) on a par 4 courtesy of Kurt Nelson knocking in a 120-yard chip.  That shot along with the fantastic weather made for a great day for the Team.

TFMoran was a proud PLATINUM Sponsor of this ASCE-NH Scholarship fund raising event, along with Continental Paving and WSP.

Thank you to ASCE-NH for supporting young and aspiring engineers and putting on another great event!

The 2nd Annual Engineers Day Conference took place at the Puritan Conference Center in Manchester, NH, providing professional development hours and networking opportunities for licensed professionals while giving back to the next generation of engineers by raising $15,000 for the ASCE-NH Scholarship Fund!

Beyond providing educational opportunities to New Hampshire youth, attendees were treated to a program consisting of Resilient & Innovative Construction Practices, NH-Based Research Driving Progress Throughout the Granite State, and Principles of Effective Leadership, High Performance Teams, and Competent Communication.  Each session was led by skilled speakers handpicked by the ASCE-NH Board of Directors who proved to be informative and thought provoking.

The ASCE-NH Scholarship fund includes two types of scholarship; the Fred L. Douglas High School Scholarship and the S. Russell Stearns Scholarship.  The Fred L. Douglas High School Scholarship was created in 2000 and named in honor of ASCE-NH Life member and the long time Chair of the Scholarship Fund Fred Douglas.  Its purpose is to aid New Hampshire high school students in their pursuit of an engineering education, with the hope to increase the awareness of the civil engineering profession for high school students in New Hampshire.  New Hampshire High School Students who are accepted to any ABET-Accredited engineering program are eligible for this scholarship.  S. Russell Stearns (1915-1997) was a professor of engineering at Dartmouth College for a record-setting 54 years and was known for his soft-spoken, nurturing grandfatherly nature. With the amazing support of his wife, Lee, Professor Stearns was a leader within the New Hampshire engineering community. This scholarship is an annual award for ASCE Student Members who are enrolled in an ABET-accredited civil engineering program.  The number of recipients and value of each scholarship varies depending on the quantity and character of applications received each year.

The deadline for applications is April 30, 2020 and scholarships will be presented to the recipients at the May ASCE-NH membership meeting.
