Engineers Without Borders 10+ Year Anniversary Celebration Apr 29

On April 9th, 2016, EWB hosted Professor Christopher Swan, ScD., P.E., Professor Jennifer Coates, Ph.D., Joshua Das, MPH, Natasha Wright, and Sarah Freeman for our 10+ year anniversary event in Cabot Asean Auditorium. The night focused on clean water projects both domestically and internationally, with each speaker offering their own unique experiences and perspectives. The speeches were interesting, relevant, and enjoyed by all, including the many non-EWB members who attended the event. Fred Berger, one of our largest donors who passed away recently, was honored during Sarah Freeman’s speech where she discussed his impact on her pursuit of a career in international development.

Having spent the first day of EWB’s inspection trip to Solomoni Village, Malawi checking into our hotel (and quickly passing out onto our beds), I was, along with a faulty Wi-Fi-card, unable to remark on my thoughts and send them back to Medford. However, Day 2 has proved to more propitious.
