Our American Concrete Institute (ACI) student chapter brought home top awards from the ACI Missouri Concrete Conference held on April 26, 2012 at MS&T in Rolla. The conference featured two student competitions organized by construction industry professionals attending the conference. Civil Engineering (CE) senior Kevin Buck won 1st place in the undergraduate poster competition and Master’s CE student Gunjan Sheye won 3rd place in the graduate poster competition. It was clear that team work pays off when CE senior Andrew O’Laughlin and Gunjan Shetye won 1st place for best artistic concrete. The winners were awarded cash prizes sponsored by the ACI Missouri chapter. Completing its first year as a student organization, our UMKC ACI student chapter can take pride in its achievements. CE faculty Ceki Halmen, John Kevern and Ganesh Thiagarajan are ACI student chapter faculty advisors.
