Alex was a four-year member of Hempfield Area High School’s BotsIQ team.  He went on to attend and graduate from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.  While there, he was the student president of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and interned at Curtiss Wright.  Recently, Alex was hired at Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory as an engineer.

“My time spent with Bots IQ led to some of my greatest high school memories. The knowledge gained during my time in the program, helped me not only in my undergraduate studies, but also in my internship experiences. I am very appreciative of every challenge and opportunity that I had. Each opportunity helped me to grow as a person, as a scholar, and as a leader. I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for all of those who dedicated countless time and energy for the benefit of my learning. Specifically, I would like to thank Mr. Craig Siniawski (Hempfield Area Senior High School Instructor), Composidie EDM Services, and my family.”
