"Alumni News"

Dear Alumni,

I'm pleased to report that the Chapter has become one of the university's signature programs, contributing significantly to UAH's national rankings.  But as we continue to grow, we need more and more funds to maintain the quality that you and other alumni fostered.  We really appreciate your past contributions and need your support now.  So, please see the alumni challenge initially issued by Mr. Kirk Biszick way back in 2001.

If you've helped us already this year, I thank you from the bottom of my heart...   John A. Gilbert, Ph.D.



Dear Fellow ASCE Student Chapter Alumni:

Ladies and Gentlemen!  It gave me great pleasure to kick off the chapter's alumni challenge by donating $100 to the UAH ASCE Student Chapter.  The students certainly deserve our support and I challenge you to match the contribution that I made way back in 2001.  We realize that some of you may not be able to invest at this level.  But all donations will help.  I ask you to contribute only what you can afford.  But the more the better.  Since many companies have matching programs, please explore these possibilities.  The Chapter's offer to provide corporate links on this web site may help in this regard.

Your gift is tax deductible and will be acknowledged.  Checks should be made out to the "UAH ASCE Student Chapter," and sent to them at the following address:

Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
University of Alabama in Huntsville
Huntsville, Alabama 35899.

I would like to thank my fellow alumni who have joined me to support Team UAH at the ASCE/MBT National Concrete Canoe Competitions.  

The chapter is gearing up for the next national competition.  Time is of the essence, so please respond quickly.  Thanks!

Kirk Biszick, '92, '00, '10 was affiliated with our chapter for many years and served as our chapter president in 1996.  He returned to UAH to complete his doctoral degree and graduated in 2010.

From Dr. Gilbert...

In closing, I'm very glad that you dropped by.  Be sure to visit our concrete canoe partition where I made an effort to document all of our stints. As many of you already know, I was compiling an alumni list but fell delinquent in that regard.  Now that I retired from UAH, I hope to find the time to bring it up to date. 

Please check back later.  If your name does not appear there, or it is listed incorrectly, I apologize and want to hear from you.  So, please contact me.

Professor Emeritus (and still Team UAH faculty advisor)
