NEW YORK CITY, May 20, 2015 – Yesterday, at an annual event that brings New York’s elite Professional Engineers of present and future together, Dagher Engineering awarded a $2,500 scholarship to a Manhattan College engineering student, Nicholas Adamo.
The Metropolitan Region Membership Meeting, held annually since 2002 by the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York (ACEC NY), allows ACEC member firms to generously make scholarships available to engineering students attending New York State colleges and universities.
Dagher Engineering was one of nine ACEC member firms at yesterday’s luncheon presenting a scholarship to students working tenaciously toward a civil engineering degree. Mr. Adamo has shown nothing but dedication to his engineering pursuit through his active membership with organizations such as the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Construction Management Association of America, and the New York Water Environment Association. He also received immense praise from Manhattan College’s Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Dr. Hossain Azam.
Elias Dagher, Founding Principal and CEO of Dagher Engineering, took a vested interest in Mr. Adamo’s plans to pursue his master’s degree while they spoke. “It’s important to teach young engineers that learning doesn’t stop once you finish school. It continues throughout your career,” said Dagher. “This is an important program because it promotes education and the field of engineering. The staff at Dagher Engineering is always working to learn new technology and stay ahead of trends. “
