Sometimes, the dogs ride shotgun, holstered to the backseat, able to take in the views from 10,000 feet high. Other times, they rest in the cargo hold, as the 4-seat Cessna 172SP soars 160 miles an hour to places as far flung as Indiana, Louisiana or Rhode Island. 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.
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.
The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) has awarded the RS&H-designed Rogersville Project Freeway its 2017 National Award for Excellence in Transportation.
Not only did the Missouri highway project earn the DBIA’s top transportation award, but it was also given the inaugural DBIA Chairman’s Award for Community Impact and Social Responsibility.
On Monday, RS&H associates presented their custom, wheelchair-fitting costumes to five children of the Independent Living Resource Center for Halloween. The story was picked up by NBC News and featured on the Halloween edition of MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle.
On a hot, muggy day in New Orleans, Louisiana, RS&H Senior Tolls Technology Specialist David Raines led a group of volunteers to landscape a newly-built neighborhood. Together, they would provide veterans suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with a beautiful, calming environment.
