Engineers Week 2015 Proclamation  Presentation PhotoLake Havasu City Mayor Mark S. Nexsen proclaims the week of February 22 through 28, 2015 as Engineers Week in Lake Havasu City to recognize all Engineers including five Professional Engineers working for Lake Havasu City on a daily basis dedicated to making our community a better place to live: Jeremy Abbott, W. Mark Clark, J. Greg Froslie, Ryan Molhoek, and Richard Wells. Mayor Nexsen urges all citizens to share in his recognition of the far-reaching contributions engineers have made as well as acknowledge the tremendous impact they continue to have on our lives. Engineering professions provide the public with a number of necessities, including the design and construction of large complex industrial facilities and delicate medical instruments; computer software and mechanical systems that clean and cool the environment; water systems for communities; and electrical transmission and distribution systems to power homes and businesses. They face major technological challenges – from rebuilding towns devastated by natural disaster, cleaning up the environment, and assuring safe, clean, and efficient sources of energy, to designing information systems that will speed our country into the future. Founded by National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) in 1951, National Engineers Week/ or EWeek is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers. Today, EWeek is a formal coalition of more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions to quality of life, EWeek promotes recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the importance of a technical education and a high level of math, science, and technology literacy, and motivates youth, to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Each year, EWeek reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the U.S. For more information please visit www.nspe.org or www.discovere.org
