Michigan Tech alumnus Kyle Bareither has been named one of 10 “New Faces of Civil Engineering” by the American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE). Each year the ASCE recognizes 10 young, diverse and talented engineers that highlight the next generation of civil engineering leaders.
Bareither currently works at Natural Resources Technology (NRT), an environmental consulting firm headquartered in Milwaukee, WI. He also serves as president of ASCE’s Wisconsin section Southeast Branch Younger Member Group (YMG) and is a member for the YMG’s STEM Expo, a program that provides hands-on STEM activities for local K-12 students.
After a successful battle with Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2010, Bareither decided that he wanted to give as much of his time helping others. He volunteers his time with Imerman Angels – An organization created to provide one-on-one support for those facing cancer – and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The ASCE will officially recognize Bareither and the other nine nominees at the Outstanding Projects and Leaders (OPAL) Gala on March 17, 2016.
