The Columbus office has entered two teams for the Bowl for Kids’ Sake, which is a fundraising event for Big Brother Big Sisters of Central Ohio. Each team has a minimum fundraising goal of $500, so the office hopes to raise $1,000 in charitable donations. This is a competition between the two teams to make it fun.

Also, Columbus hosted five high school students for the “Engineer for a Day” program on February 19. The Franklin County Chapter of the Ohio Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) and the Engineers Foundation of Ohio host the program, which is offered to high school students interested in engineering as a career. Bill Acton, John Dinunzio, Dustin Doherty, Jim Fields, Rick Harkless, David Heedy, Sheila Hoh, Mark Smith, and Tim Volchko all had roles during a very well-planned schedule for the students, which included topics like Civil 3D, scanning/drones, commercial and residential development, municipal engineering, and the Oil & Gas market.
On top of that, Columbus will soon host a tour for the OSPE Ohio State University Chapter students for them to see what life is like after college. The Columbus team will provide a tour of the office, a discussion of the services CEC offers, and information and expectations for the transition between college and a career.
Columbus’ Dustin Doherty has also been busy with CEC Community activities on his own.
- He was a proctor at the recent Math Counts competition for students in sixth through eighth grades.
- He was a judge at the recent Future Cities Competition, a project-based learning program for students in sixth through eighth grades to research, design, and build cities.
- He hosted the Imagine Engineering program at four elementary schools in central Ohio. In this program, local members of the OSPE visit classrooms to talk with second graders about what engineers do.
- He will be a presenter at the 2019 Central Ohio STEM Expo on March 2.
