My year as President of the Bexar Chapter is quickly coming to a close and I feel I am just catching my breath. The April Awards Dinner honored several remarkable young people. Because of the successful proceeds from E-Week, we were able to give out
five scholarships for $2,500 each to some amazing high school seniors, and two second year scholarships to past scholarship winners. A warm thank you goes out to all the people that helped volunteer their time and leadership to making E-week so successful. Below is a list of the E-week Committee:
E-Week Committee Chair – Lorena Carter Treasurer – Charlie Hickman Proclamation Breakfast- Russell Rincon Engineer for a Day- Steve Lin and Amanda Saldivar
Past President’s Lunch- Lorena Carter Golf Tournament- Ray Mendez 5k Revenge of the Nerds- Laura Campa
Sporting Clay- Byron Sanderfer Engineer of the Year Banquet- Ty Turner
Sponsorships- Paulette Marazzini
If you see or meet any of them, please tell them thank you and job well done!
We also honored our Science Fair winners at the dinner. We gave cash prizes for first and second place in the Junior and Senior Division from the Alamo City Science Fair. Many thanks to the TSPE volunteer judges for finding these outstanding students!
The Engineering Technology Challenge was held on April 5th. There were 33 teams which represented over 130 participants. Everyone that participated and volunteered had a blast!
Last month was busy and here comes the May Meeting. On May 5th, we will be installing the new officers and holding the Order of the Engineer Ceremony. So come, wear your engineering ring with pride, and encourage someone in your work place to participate and get their ring!

ORDER OF THE ENGINEER
The Texas Society of Professional Engineers will host an Order of the Engineer Ceremony on Monday, May 5th, at 12:00pm. This is an event in which engineers obligate themselves to serving the public through their engineering talents and education. The Order serves to encourage a sprit of pride in the engineering profession and to present to others a visible symbol identifying engineers.
Participation in the ceremony is limited to currently licensed professional engineers, recent graduates of ABET engineering schools and those who are within one year of graduation from an ABET school.
The Order is unusual as there are no dues to pay or meetings to attend, (there is an initiation one time cost of $20 to
defray certificate and ring costs), no committees to join or offices to hold. The pact is with the individuals, to themselves and their profession. This event provides an excellent opportunity to join.
Please arrive at the Chapter Meeting on Monday, May 5th at 11:30pm to register for the Order of the Engineer
