Garver, STEM students meet at Texas State Capitol

Garver’s dedication to promoting the importance of a STEM education was recognized recently by the Texas House of Representatives, while it shared that message with about 200 students from across the state. The resolution passed by the Texas House accompanied “STEM Powered by Aviation at the Capitol” hosted by Rep. John Cyrier, who is also a licensed pilot.
Garver, which has eight offices in Texas, was recognized along with Southwest Airlines, Lockheed Martin, and Gulfstream Aerospace in the resolution for establishing partnerships that ensure students are prepared for future careers in aviation and promoting the acquisition of skills required for such a field. Developing a skilled workforce with a STEM foundation is “essential to the continued vitality” of aviation, which contributes significantly to the prosperity of Texas, the resolution said.

Garver Project Manager and Aviation Team Leader Josh Crawford spoke to the students at the Texas State Capitol about the GarverGives program and the importance of advancing STEM education for aviation. The students, most of whom attend Texas high schools, were given the chance to speak to Garver employees about A-E professions in the aviation industry.
“Getting out in the communities where we work is always a priority for us,” Josh said. “But it’s even better when we can meet face-to-face with students who are interested in our fields. We want to show them how rewarding a future career in our industry can be.”
