Five metallurgical engineering students from Missouri S&T brought home scholarships from the Foundry Educational Foundation’s College Industry Conference in November.

The conference was held Nov. 17-18 in Chicago. Seven S&T students attended, along with Dr. Laura Bartlett, Robert V. Wolf Associate Professor in Metallurgical Engineering and the Foundry Educational Foundation Key Professor.

The scholarship recipients are:

  • Keaton Allen, a senior in metallurgical engineering from Bartlesville, Oklahoma, was awarded the Paul Carey Memorial Scholarship for $3,000.
  • Nathan Davis, a senior in metallurgical engineering from Barnhart, Missouri, was awarded the Robert V. Wolf Memorial Scholarship for $2,000.
  • William Hale, a senior in metallurgical engineering from Warrenton, Missouri, was awarded the Donald G. Brunner Scholarship for $2,000
  • Katelyn Kiser, a graduate student in metallurgical engineering from Peoria, Illinois, was awarded the Dr. Katherine E. Mortimer Scholarship for Women in Metal Casting for $4,000
  • Hayes Pateidl, a senior in metallurgical engineering from Overland Park, Kansas, was awarded the Carle Loper Award for $3,000.

Jackson Piontek, a senior in metallurgical engineering from Washington, Missouri, and John Reutter, a junior in metallurgical engineering from Rolla, Missouri, also attended the conference as delegates.

The Foundry Educational Foundation (FEF) formed after World War II to address the need for skilled professionals in the cast metals industry and remains a major source of support for students. The FEF’s College Industry Conference is the largest recruiting event for the cast metals industry, providing students with opportunities to network with employers and win scholarships.
