PBS&J SUPPORTS SAN DIEGO MESA STUDENTS
Foundation grant helps provide leadership development
San Diego, CA – With the goal of engaging potential leaders in professional development activities, PBSJ recently granted a $5,000 contribution to the Math, Engineering and Science Achievement (MESA) Alliance in support of MESA’s annual leadership summit. Funding was provided through The PBSJ Foundation, Inc.
The San Diego MESA Alliance, comprised of San Diego State University, San Diego City College, Southwestern College, and Ventura College, provides out-of-classroom experiences and professional development opportunities for its students.
The grant will be used to host San Diego MESA students at the MESA Leadership Summit that will take place in February 2010. The three-day summit will support 60 San Diego MESA students and will focus on individual strengths, teamwork, and leadership through various seminars and leadership workshops.
“We believe in what the MESA Engineering Program can achieve through the Leadership Summit, and we’re pleased to support such a great program that helps improve the leadership ability and personal growth of the students,” says Jennifer Chen, Senior Project Manager based in PBSJ’s San Diego office. “This program develops a community of engineers and physical science students who not only utilize the skills learned in college, but also share these new talents with peers and pre-college students.”
