Recently I contacted my old mechanical drafting teacher from high school who left a life long impression on me with regards to drafting and presenting a construction/design document. Of course this was in the days of hand drafting, either parallel rule or vertical drafting arm/machine, but I tracked him down the other day to let him know I still think of him and his class and instruction and how I feel the experience had made me a better designer and engineer. I also let him know I would like to provide an excelling student, intent on a field of engineering and/or design a small scholarship and would be willing to do this for at least a number of years into the future. He responded with excitement and appreciation and went on to ask if I would mind if the award went toward the purchase of school equipment or field trips for the entire class and program. I'm still in the middle of my response and in a quandary as to while I see this as also beneficial, as to whether a fund raising program on the school side would have the same results for raising moneys for school property and field trips. Not exactly what I had in mind, but yes,...still beneficial. Any thoughts? Respond at your absolute leisure of course, this is not an Eng-Tips Emergency! ;) ,....don't want anyone to miss a deadline over this.
