(From Manny Carrizales, TSPS Rio Grande Valley Chapter 19 President)
As many of you already know, Texas Surveyors Week is coming up the week of March 20-26. TSPS Chapter 19 is once again teaming up with Texas State Technical College (TSTC), Harlingen, to participate in Surveyor Awareness Day. This will take place on Wednesday, March 23rd at the TSTC Campus. This is just a way of getting the word out about our profession. We plan on setting up a booth/table on campus where we will be meeting and greeting students, faculty, and staff. We are planning on also displaying several instruments that are used in our everyday work. Also, we will be having activities in the form of obstacle courses and giving away prizes and goodies.
We are asking for anyone that would be interested to get involved. We would love to have our surveyors take an hour or two and come by and shake some hands, meet some students, and talk about our profession. If you would like to participate, please contact me at Manny.Carrizales@dannenbaum.com and I can give you more details on the how, when, where and what.
Looking forward to a great day and hope to see some of you out there!
