ACE Mentors Graduation

This month held the ACE Mentors Graduation for Inland Chapter Student Class of 2018! Students across the Inland Empire from Eisenhower, Santiago, Chaffey, and Martin Luther King High Schools came together and showcased this year’s design projects. 

The ACE Mentor Program of America is a national organization established to mentor high school students and inspire them to pursue careers in architecture, construction, and engineering (ACE).  Each year, students learn about the building process by working through a design project with industry professional volunteers. Designs can be submitted national for competition. Students who participate can also receive scholarships if they pursue industry related degrees. The Inland Empire chapter just completed its sixth year of programs and continues to grow in numbers and influence.

Over this year, Design West Engineering helped mentor students at both the Eisenhower and Santiago High School programs. Jeremy Richard, a mentor with the Eisenhower program shared,

“ACE is such a great program for giving back to the community, but even more, for steering the next generation of the best and brightest toward education and career choices that will benefit our industry for years to come. We need it!”
