ASU Engineering Team wins Deep South Competition with MH graduate

Twenty students in the A-State civil engineering program, including a Mountain Home graduate, competed in the recent Deep South Conference in Ruston, La.

The Deep South Conference conducts a series of civil engineering activities testing students’ design abilities, construction and usability skills, teamwork and understanding of their chosen field. In addition to finishing first place overall in the steel bridge and surveying competitions, A-State’s sustainable doghouse team won third place. Among the team’s roster was Patrick Leppold of Mountain Home, who is currently a senior and has recently accepted an offer with the Tennessee Department of Transportation as part of its Jackson design office’s graduate associate program.

Other members of the third-place winning team included Ian Gates of Maumelle, James Ketchum of Heber Springs and Ziyad Almalki of Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
