Brian Post, an undergraduate student in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, was the recipient of the 2010 Steve L. and Pamela C. Massie Undergraduate Scholarship through the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Post, who will be a senior in the fall, was one of only two students from Massachusetts who received an award from the AGC Education and Research Foundation. Scholarships were awarded to 120 students from across the country enrolled in civil engineering or construction management programs.
Post has served as both the treasurer and president of the UMass Amherst Chapter of AGC, reestablished as a student organization in 2008. As an officer, he has scheduled meetings with guest speakers from the construction industry, organized OSHA 10-hour safety courses, secured donations for the chapter, and planned tours of construction sites. He will continue in his current position as president during the 2010-11 academic year. (August 2010)
