Sam J Sutton
ENCE BS, MS 2006
The paver is for our son, Sam - both my husband, Larry, and I are alums (MBA's). Sam always wanted to attend SMU's engineering school. Larry is a Gerogia Tech enginnering grad - so there was a discussion about schools. Sam presented a proposal to his Dad on SMU's School of Engineering and the positives it offered him vs Georgia Tech. He and his Dad visited the school, spoke with the Dean and some professors and Larry realized that the school was a perfect fit for Sam and that it offered some classes and some ideology that Tech did not. Sam was very successful at SMU - had great profs and mentors and is now a senior Environmental Engineer at Bell Helicopter - he feels his successes come from his degrees at SMU as well as the people he interacted with everyday, from his fellow studtents and his professors to the adminstrative assistants - everyone helped him to reach his goals. Sam's paver is a celebration & lasting memorial of his time at SMU & our thanks to SMU & Engineering.
