Matthew is an alum of the Greater Nashville area ACE Mentor program and he recently sent us this update about how things are going.
If you know of other alums of our program, let them know we want to keep in touch and share their updates also.
Over the summer, I worked as an intern at Collier Engineering, a civil engineering firm in Brentwood. While there I did a variety of work and it was a great experience for me and my fellow interns.
I was elected to be the fundraising chair for the Tennessee Tech ASCE chapter at the end of last year, so I’ve been in charge of raising money for our chapter. I recently finished writing a sponsorship proposal to send to TTU alumni and engineering firms in order to gain sponsors.
The steel bridge is coming along smoothly this year. Our design is very strong and I think we stand a good chance for the competition coming up in March. We have our entire team from last year as well as some new members to help speed up the fabrication process, which has given us a boost regarding time constraints.
As you can tell, the past few months have been really busy for me and I’m excited for what’s to come over the rest of the year. Best wishes to all of those involved with the ACE Mentor program.
Great insight on the ACE Mentor program from one of our partner firms here in Nashville.

The Aces – are beginning the research on our theme of ” Resilient”.

While the After Aces ( afternoon program) team has completed a scavenger hunt around the school to open their eyes up to particular construction details are required or their school has. Those students have research the theme “Resilient” and Resilience” and found it was much more hard work than anticipated in developing ideas for a project of interest.
