SPE Chapter Receives Gold Standard Award
The Texas Tech University student chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers has earned the Gold Standard Award for 2013, in recognition of its exceptional programs in technology dissemination, membership development, community and social outreach, and more.
This is the second consecutive year that the chapter has been recognized with the Gold Standard Award by SPE. SPE members go to The Haven Animal Care Shelter in Lubbock once each semester to assist this non-profit, volunteer only, no-kill shelter. The students have repaired kennels and fencing, cleaned facilities, walked dogs, and provided help in many other ways. Twice a year, the organization converges on two miles of Interstate 27 North of the Lubbock airport as a part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Program, cleaning up trash and litter. As the students clean up the road, it is a great time to connect with other students, meet new members, and share experiences from classes, labs, and summer internships.
