Topic: Engineers: Pioneers of Progress

Each year in Central Ohio, we celebrate the work of Professional Engineers by observing National Engineers week, a celebration dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce.

This year we will be hosting an in depth presentation on the CRAA current expansion and the engineering profession. Join fellow engineering colleagues and students for an excellent networking and mentoring opportunity, as well as a delicious meal during the presentation.

We hope to see you there!

Nathan is a first year graduate student at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. He is pursuing a Doctorate in Engineering Education. He recently graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia obtaining a degree in Computer Science. He is proving that he is somebody who can make a change. Nathan is currently an associate minister at the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church, where Dr. Charles E. Booth is the pastor. Nathan is the face that will change the pernicious cycle of stereotyped Black men that are highlighted in the latest statistics regarding the fall of the Black male. He can be and is the proof that can be the change we want to see in our future. He has great optimism and promise with a goal of gaining a foothold in the future of America. He chose to live above the stereotypes, the norms of society and follow his goal to become a Computer Engineer.
