ACEC/MA Awards Education Corporation President's Scholarship to Northeastern student Regan Kelly

BOSTON - BostonChron -- The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Northeastern student Regan Kelly as a recipient of the 2021 Education Corporation Presidents' Scholarship.

Kelly is pursuing a dual Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Civil Engineering at Northeastern University with a concentration in Structures. To prepare for her May 2022 graduation date, Regan has worked as a geotechnical and structural engineering co-op at two local consulting firms. During her most recent co-op, her supervisor was "very impressed with Regan's grasp beyond the factual or obvious information, and her ability to think critically and formulate a plan for solving the problem at hand." These skills extend to her academic life as she is a member of the University Honors Program and Chi Epsilon and Tau Beta Pi engineering honor societies, and has won both the President's Award and Civil and Environmental Engineering Department Awards. Regan believes in civil engineers' duty to serve the communities in which they operate and to "address infrastructure needs and challenges in a way that emphasizes safety, fairness, and quality." This mindset reinforces Regan's decision to pursue a career in civil engineering.
