“We are in an extraordinary time of focus on infrastructure, and it has highlighted the need for more smart, talented, and hard-working individuals to join our profession. Our value to the members must compel engagement as a student, as a young professional, and for the rest of one’s career. We must be vigilant in leading an effort to transform the education of new civil engineers so their skills are relevant now and future ready,” Bomar wrote in her nominee vision statement.
