Transmission and Distribution World Features EPIC

UNC Charlotte’s Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC) recently was featured on the website Transmission and Distribution World.

In an article on the website, EPIC was called one of the "biggest university/industry partnerships in the country."

EPIC director Johan Enslin invited Transmission and Distribution World Strategic Director Rich Bush, a mechanical engineer, to visit the facility. He was "mesmerized with the million pound, 32-foot high wall where EPIC researchers can evaluate transmission foundations and tower sections."

Doctoral Student Receives $20,000 National Fellowship

Counseling student LaTonya Summers is one of 22 doctoral scholars across the United States to be selected for the Minority Fellowship Program by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC).

As a result of this honor, Summers will receive $20,000 and training to support her education and facilitate her efforts with underserved minority populations.

Summers, who is pursuing a doctoral degree in counselor education and supervision, founded the LifeSkills Counseling and Consulting Group, where she oversees a free counseling program for people who are uninsured and unemployed. In Charlotte, 17 percent of the total population is uninsured and 10 percent is unemployed. Since 2007, she has served more than 300 individuals and families. She also founded a professional counseling training institute, which provides monthly NBCC-approved workshops.
