ASSE Greater San Jose’s Fall 2017 Scholarship Winners
Posted - Dec 08, 2017
The ASSE Greater San Jose Chapter has been involved in awarding three academic scholarships to deserving local college students. They have been recognized at the ASSE – BAESG Holiday Dinner on Wed Dec. 6.
ASSE San Jose awarded two $1,500 scholarships to San Jose State University students with an interest in the EH&S field
Sue is an Industrial and Systems Engineering undergraduate with a clear passion for our field. She was highly recommended by two respected EH&S professionals, including our own Christy Foster, who teachers her Occupational Health course at SJSU. She is actively involved in several student organizations, has demonstrated leadership abilities, and is on track to become a successful EH&S professional
Laura is an Environmental Studies graduate student with career goals in the environmental field. Her Master’s thesis involves bioretention systems and green infrastructure, with research relating to water-borne illness, air quality, and public safety. She is a great leader with clear academic ability (including a 4.0 GPA!) and we are happy to support her contributions to the environmental field.
ASSE San Jose also contributed $250 to the Las Positas Community College scholarship for students studying occupational health and safety. The scholarship was awarded to:

Aarin is an Occupational Safety and Health student who is also pursuing a CHST certification. He has constantly established himself as a top performing student and hopes to obtain a Master’s Degree in OSH. He is a professional union painter and uses his passion for safety to improve his workplace. We are glad to support Aarin on his path to becoming a full-time safety professional.
