On November 5th, RLG’s Alisa Dowd and Mark Bartlett teamed up with Brian Nelson from HKS to present information on Structural Engineering and Architecture careers to junior and senior scholars at Peak Preparatory School in Dallas. Peak is one of 26 Uplift School’s in the DFW area. Uplift's mission is to create and sustain public schools of excellence that empower each student to reach their highest potential in college and the global marketplace. Each school provides free college preparatory education in a community that has limited high quality public education options. Their goal is to completely CLOSE the achievement gap between students, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background, while ensuring that 100% of their students graduate and enroll in college. www.uplifteducation.org
RLG is the structural and civil engineer and HKS is the architect for Peak’s new primary school that is currently under construction.
