ASHRAE Student Activities Update 7/20/2020

Submitted by Greg Thinkler, P.E. / President Elect

Our traditional Student Night event was canceled in light of concerns about the COVID-19 this year. However, the ASHRAE Houston Chapter continued to award scholarships based upon the Scholarship Review Committee recommendation. The three winners were:

Hongxiang Fu - TAMU

Qinbo Li - TAMU

Xi Zhao - TAMU

I would also like to recognize Jiajun ‘Francis’ Liao for volunteering to be our new student activities chair and Elmer Whitehead for co-chair. Make sure to say thank you the next time you see them!

The Texas A&M ASHRAE chapter is planning to attend the ASHRAE Winter meeting in Chicago and are seeking funds for travel. If you are feeling generous, please contact myself or the other ASHRAE board members. 

As in years past our ongoing efforts will be to grow student interest in ASHRAE within the local colleges (University of Houston, Rice, LoneStar college, etc..), increase chapter participation of K-12 activities, and involvement in Engineers Week. If anyone has contact information for potential interest or involvement, please email me or Jiajun ‘Francis’.

Stay well and we will meet you at the next Student Night event!
