ASSP Greater San Jose 2018 Summer Scholarship Winner

Posted: Aug 15, 2018

The ASSP Greater San Jose Chapter is proud to fund biannual scholarships for deserving college students interested in EH&S. Our $1,500 summer scholarship winners are Lee-Tan Lu and Dominic Casas, both from San Jose State University.

Lee-Tan (pictured below, right) is a graduate student in Environmental Studies. Her thesis project involves solar panel waste management and government regulations regarding extended producer responsibility in California. The panels create an environment and human health threat that she is hoping to solve with improved disposal strategies. She is an international student from Taiwan and she plans to use the scholarship to attend more professional conferences in the environmental field.

Dominic (pictured below, right) is an undergraduate Chemical Engineering student who plans to pursue a PhD in Environmental Engineering. He is passionate about sustainability and the global ecosystem, with work experience at NASA’s OMEGA FARM System and Thermo Fisher Scientific. His technical skills are matched by impressive interpersonal and leadership skills, with a reputation for being “vibrant, outgoing, personable, friendly, and inquisitive” according to his supervisor at Thermo.

 

Our chapter also funds a $250 scholarship for Las Positas Community College, which was awarded to Matt Chasm.

Matt began his career as an equipment operator and foreman at a concrete and asphalt recycling program. He is now studying Occupational Safety and Health and working as a Safety and Compliance officer at Argent Materials. He hopes to one day become a CSP and QSP.

 

Congratulations to all of our scholarship award recipients!
