Jordan Lucki and Katy Arenschield, ECS Co-op and Intern Program Manager
How cool would it be to be recognized as “Intern of the Year” by a national engineering organization? This recognition includes being flown to attend a conference luncheon and reception, being awarded in front of a room full of engineering education professionals and employers, and given a hefty cash prize to top it off. Just ask Jordan Lucki, recent Chemical engineering grad and recipient of the 2018 Intern of the Year Award from the American Society of Engineering Education.
Jordan volunteered as a Career Fair Coach with ECS this past fall, putting him on the radar of ECS’s Co-op and Internship Program Manager, Katy Arenschield. His commitment to give back to the college and community and his impressive resume made him an obvious choice for nomination for this award.
