Inaugural Albert Scholars Named

Corin Brown, a civil engineering major from Boone, and Henry Speaker, a mechanical engineering major from Takoma Park, Md., are the first recipients of the Albert Engineering Leadership Scholarship, established in 2014 through a gift from alumni Craig and Darla Albert.

The Albert Engineering Leadership Scholars Program was created to emphasize applied learning, campus involvement and professional development. Albert, who requested the program focus on fostering leadership skills, said, "I’ve seen how important leadership is in accomplishing great things and I believe the best leaders in our country have good technical backgrounds in addition to good leadership skills. I think engineers, because of their technical background, have the potential to be the best leaders, so I want to teach engineers about leadership so they can leverage more than their own personal capability."

Albert Scholarship covers tuition and fees, housing and meals, books, a laptop computer, summer experiences, participation in the Lee College for Engineering Leadership Academy, study abroad opportunities and a professional development stipend.
