Brian Nazarian wins R. Ray Goode Community Service Award

Each month, Brian Nazarian and his son, Wolfgang, load their utility trailer with tools and materials and head out to rendezvous with their team of volunteers in San Antonio, Texas. The retired Air Force civil engineer and current RS&H associate wants to instill in his son the values of integrity, service and excellence that he embodied while in the military – and which he sees reinforced every day at RS&H.

On June 18, Brian received a citizenship accolade of his own, as the recipient of RS&H’s R. Ray Goode Community Service Award.

But regardless of where they’re situated in the plane or where they’re going to on the ground, these pups are almost always flying toward a better future, thanks to non-profits like Pilots N Paws   – and a dedicated RS&H associate.

Associates Inspire Next Generation of Women in STEM

After RS&H engineers Priscilla Brubeck and Maria Ruiz completed a STEM workshop for teen and pre-teen girls, a fifth grader walked up to the pair and told them she wanted to be a computer engineer.

“At that age, I didn’t even know what an engineer was,” Priscilla said. “It’s so important to plant that seed early on in kids’ – especially girls’ – lives.”

That is exactly what Priscilla, Maria, and other RS&H associates are trying to do, as they kick the company’s participation in STEM workshops into high gear.
