Engineering water systems for Salvadoran coffee farmers reaps unexpected rewards
The OSU students' mission - to build clean-water systems with coffee farmers living high in a hidden rainforest - would test their engineering skills and slake their thirst for new experiences. They never expected the project to change their lives.
In the last year, OSU students received recognition and won competitions in fields from tax accounting to patient care, robotics to rowing. And as Fulbright Scholars, they applied their skills throughout the world.
The OSU Alumni Association recognizes them annually with the E.B. Lemon Distinguished Alumni Award, the Dan Poling Service Award and other honors. Listen to their voices and see a list of this year's recipients on the OSU Alumni Association Web site.
