Several Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) chapters have spotlighted Garver as its featured platinum sponsor—chapters in Austin and Dallas, Texas, as well as the chapter in Kansas City.
In the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter newsletter, WTS recently highlighted the contribution of Garver Project Manager Kathy Kleinschmidt, who embodies the spirit of WTS in that she has benefitted from and is committed to giving back to the organization.
In 2005, Kathy Kleinschmidt was the intelligent single mom of a six-year-old. She was trying to balance a full-time job while earning her bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. With one year remaining in Kathy’s education the WTS awarded her the Sharon D. Banks scholarship, which helped ease the financial burden of completing her degree. Kathy has since become a talented project manager at Garver, and a fantastic role model for her daughter. In fact, Kathy’s daughter plans to embark on her own pursuit of an engineering degree this fall.
WTS’s generosity and support inspired Kathy to do what she can to empower women through WTS. Garver takes pride in employees like Kathy, who aren’t just good at what they do, but also see what good they can do others.
