Khang Nguyen is the current Waste Reduction Projects Coordinator and is a 5th year senior in the Construction Engineering Management Program and Civil Engineering Co-op Program. He will be working on several waste reduction projects throughout the school year that will promote more sustainable consumption decisions on and off the OSU campus. His previous work experience involves being an Intern for Sears Holdings and Clark County Public Works in Vancouver, WA. His love for sustainability was sparked by his humanities teacher, Mrs. Pridmore-Brown, and he lives sustainably by eliminating his use of plastic bags and bottles along with his homemade worm compost bin to recycle his food waste. After graduation, he is planning on being a corps member for Teach For America or working for a large construction contracting company like Kiewit. Khang is an avid fan of soccer and his favorite team is Chelsea FC, who plays in the English Premier League.
