We, members of the state of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities and the American Society of Civil Engineers, take great pride in extending our service to the community through mentoring.
I praise the efforts of Leslie Daugherty and Elmer Marx and thank them for their successful coordination of the Feb. 23 Engineer's Week "E-Week Build-a-Bridge Challenge at the Mendenhall Mall. The time they volunteered at the event is also greatly appreciated.
