Pre-Engineering Students Visit Garver Headquarters




Bryant Middle School pre-engineering students recently toured Garver headquarters in North Little Rock, Arkansas to learn more about the types of engineering available to someone considering a career in the industry.  

Engineers from Garver’s Aviation, Transportation, and Water teams addressed the students regarding major projects they’ve been working on, including Conway Municipal Airport, the Cottonwood Creek Bridge project, and the Tupelo Bayou Wastewater Treatment Plant.

“It’s an invaluable experience for these students to be able to meet with working engineers who can address the questions they have at such an early age about reaching their career goals,” said Garver Project Manager Aaron Stallman, who is a graduate of Bryant High School. “If I would have had the opportunity to do something like this when I was in school, it would have accelerated my experience as an engineering student.”

Garver is a proud sponsor of the pre-engineering program at BMS, which is a Project Lead the Way school. PLTW is an internationally recognized provider for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum and teacher training.
