Ben Calkins from Modesto, California
My name is Ben Calkins and I attended Fred C. Beyer High School in Modesto, California. I participated in the robotics program at my high school and will continue my engineering education at the Webb Institute in New York. I will study marine engineering and naval architecture. At Webb, I will learn engineering principles and design, as well as more specific knowledge to train me to work in the maritime industry. My end goal is to work within a ship design office.
I am very thankful for the Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation for awarding me a scholarship to help pay for my college expenses so I can pursue my engineering passion.
