Marlie Ventress, civil engineering senior, was one of 10 civil engineering students that the American Society of Civil Engineers recognized in its first annual New Faces of Civil Engineering – College Edition. These students were recognized for achieving the highest standards as college civil engineering students, whose academic success and extracurricular engagement point to a bright future as professionals in the field of civil engineering.

“It is an honor and privilege to receive this recognition for my hard work and dedication,” Ventress said. “This is another step toward developing my career goals from my previous internships and community involvement. I am proud to represent LSU as a top 10 Civil Engineering student on a national level.”  

“Marlie is a very bright student and a very hard worker,” said Sherif Ishak, associate professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. “She is very ambitious and is currently on an exchange program between U.S. and Scotland. I am confident that Ms. Ventress will have a bright future.”

“These students are an inspiration to future generations of students seeking a career in which they can make a difference,” said ASCE President Andrew Herrmann, P.E.
