New ESD scholarship award goes to architectural engineering major

Lawrence Tech Associate Professor Janice Means (L) congratulates architectural engineering major Rachel LaCasse for winning the Gold Awardee Scholarship, which was presented for the first time by the Affiliate Council of the Engineering Society of Detroit.

Architectural engineering major Rachel LaCasse is the first recipient of the $500 Gold Awardee Scholarship, which the Affiliate Council of the Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD) has established to honor the ESD Gold Award winner in the previous year. In 2011, that was Gordon V.R. Holness, chairman emeritus of Albert Kahn Associates.

LaCasse is president of the Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) student chapter at Lawrence Tech. She has a bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University in political science and comparative religion. She decided to pursue a career in sustainable housing in Third World countries after living in South Africa for five months.

The scholarship award was presented at the ESD banquet held at the Dearborn Inn Feb. 23, 2012.
