Congratulations to the 2018 Winner, Aaron Burns. Aaron is a 2015 graduate of New Haven High School and now in his 3rd year at Trine University studying civil engineering. He is the son of Joleen Gottwald of MSKTD & Associates. Last summer through an internship at Fort Wayne City Utilities, he was introduced to the water resources specialization of civil engineering. As a result, he switched focus from structural engineering to water resources engineering. His goal is to help the public have safe drinking water every day and to also try to stop or control flooding before it affects the public. He plans to eventually earn his PE designation and further confirm possible solutions for certain problems in the world of engineering. He states, “Water can provide many solutions and problems to people around the world, and there is a need for engineers to provide water and provide solutions for water, which is where I hope to be after I fulfill my education.”

Application Deadline: April 1, 2019

The family of Michael H. Kinder Jr. established this award to recognize accomplishments of a new high school graduate entering college for the first time to pursue a career in construction through a post-secondary college or apprenticeship program. Mike lived and breathed construction for 42 years while he was part owner of a local construction company. His love of all things construction continued until the day he passed. Mike was a huge perfectionist about the work he and his company did, but he also had a huge heart and a desire to help others learn and grow in the profession. He demanded the best, and his employees delivered the best. Even though Mike was the "boss", he always arrived home from work dirty because he couldn't resist helping his crews. Mike believed in growing and developing the next generation of construction talent. This program seeks students who share a similar passion as Mike had for the construction industry.
