Garver Team Competes in 200-mile Race

Employees from three different Garver offices recently teamed up to compete in Outback in the Ozarks, a 200-mile overnight relay race in Northwest Arkansas. The Garver Team finished the course after over 33 hours of running.

“It was exhausting, but it was a great opportunity to bond with some of my coworkers from different offices,” said Project Manager Jordan Culver. “It’s definitely something I want to do again.”

One of the reasons Zweig Group recently named Garver the top firm to work for in its multi-discipline category, is because of the company’s encouragement of health and wellness. Visit the to discover how you can join the Garver Team!

Sallee Named to OSU's CIVE Advisory Board

Garver Project Manager Jenny Sallee recently joined the Oklahoma State University School of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CIVE) Advisory Board. 

The university relies on the board to bridge the gap between engineering education and engineering practice. Jenny and the rest of the board will work to provide guidance that will enhance CIVE’s curriculum, as well as other parts of the program.

“It’s a chance to make a difference in the future of engineering, and to ensure the next crop of engineers are prepared for the industry that eagerly awaits them,” Jenny said. “I’m honored to be offered the opportunity and look forward to giving back to a program that gave me so much.”

Jenny, an OSU Engineering alum, formerly worked to regularly provide the student's perspective to the very advisory board she will now sit on for the next four years.

"To come full circle has given me the unique opportunity to help shape engineering education and the profession from both ends," she said.

IES Establishes Fayetteville Section, Names Gilbreath President

With the formation of its Fayetteville Chapter, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) established its second Arkansas section. Garver Aviation Electrical Leader Bart Gilbreath has been appointed to serve as the section’s first president.

The Fayetteville Section will work locally to support the IES's mission, which is "to improve the lighted environment by bringing together those with lighting knowledge and by translating that knowledge into actions that benefit the public."

Among his first duties as leader, Bart plans to establish bylaws and operating procedures for the section and focus on the organization’s growth at the local level. He also thinks it’s important for the chapter to get involved and attend regional and national meetings and leadership development conferences.

“For us to really succeed in the organization’s purpose, we’ve got to get as many professionals involved in things on a bigger scale,” Bart said. “I want to see more local designers, engineers, and firms submitting to illumination design awards, which will not only make them look good, but it will also showcase the owners and great community we’ve got in Northwest Arkansas.”

The section also named Garver Project Engineer Jared Parr the chair of Emerging Professionals, a position that will involve reaching out to high schools, universities, and new professionals to advocate IES involvement and IES section recruiting.
