Every year, the Los Angeles Younger Member Forum hosts Student Night & Job Fair. It is a signature event that draws hundreds of guests, including students, career representatives, and young professionals for a night of networking and student recognition. This year the event was held at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood on February 2nd, 2018. We brought together student leaders from over a dozen schools and connected them with over 22 companies in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
The awards banquet consisted of fine Armenian dining, distinguished speakers, surprise raffles, and copious selfies. Speakers Howard Lum, P.E., S.E., Unit Manager for Metropolitan Water district and Professor Joseph Reichenberger from Loyola Marymount University gave their remarks on the importance of infrastructure and the role students will have on tackling our civil engineering challenges.
Congratulations to all the scholarship award recipients:
Breggie Tuazon from and Jasmin Hurtado from Cal Poly Pomona, Bryan Hong, Trini Inouye, and Eric Roberts from UCLA, Michael Clark from Cal Poly SLO, and outstanding Student Chapter of the Year Cal Poly SLO. We awarded $15,000 in student scholarships that recognized these students for their outstanding work in civil engineering. YMF LA hopes to encourage these students to continue pursuing their passion and making their mark on the world.
The event was an amazing success thanks to all our sponsors, student attendees, speakers, and volunteers. We are definitely looking forward to an event better one next year.
