Engineers Week 2020

KFW is infinitely appreciative of our awesome Engineers who turn our projects into reality, day after day & year after year. To celebrate and support Engineers Week 2020, KFW sponsored & attended every E-Week event, giving our staff the opportunity to network & have some fun!

Proclamation Breakfast

Our Engineers mingled with students from local high schools joining TSPE in kicking off San Antonio's Engineer Week with the official Proclamation from Mayor Nirenberg which declares Engineer's Week an official City event. Then, the students watch a film, Dream Big: Changing the Conversation About Engineering, which explains the importance of engineering in every day life. After breakfast they all head off to their respective sponsoring companies for an engineer for a day job shadow experience. KFW was excited to sponsor 8 students.

Engineer-for-a-Day Job Shadow

We always look forward to hosting local students for the Engineer-For-A-Day Program. This year we had Junior & Senior level students from a mixture of schools visit KFW's commercial, residential, survey, GIS, & public works departments. The groups were small, about 2 per Engineer, which benefitted the students because they got more concentrated attention with better opportunities to ask specific questions.

Honoring Past Presidents Luncheon

It was great to sit & chat with some of our City's highest regarded Engineers. This event honors the past Presidents of the TSPE - Bexar Chapter. We also heard a very interesting presentation from Alamo Heights ISD representatives about their robust engineering & robotics program.

SMPS Happy Hour at Little Woodrow's

What a loud & crazy annual event! KFW's employees hung out with fellow design industry members with drink tickets & raffle prizes in hand. Making connections is so important in our industry & this event always proves to be fruitful (and fun)!

Engineer's Week is a great way to instill pride in our employees for being an outstanding community member through their work, as well as dutifully support the ASCE San Antonio Branch's efforts.

From start to finish there are great opportunities to share our knowledge with students, meet industry peers, & ultimately strengthen the fabric of the local design community.
