Minority Student Recruitment Program for Engineering Unveiled


A Springfield alderman says minority students lack the connections and ability to network that can help them break into competitive fields like engineering.

 

But Alderman Gail Simpson hopes a new public-private partnership can change that.

 

Details were unveiled Monday on the Minority Participation Plan, which is aimed at identifying kids as early as middle school with an aptitude for math or science… and steering them into careers in engineering, especially in areas related to railroads.

 

Hanson Professional Services… which is spearhearing the local railroad relocation project… is putting up $20,000 a year to go along with $20,000 each from the city and county governments.
