Schnabel’s Richmond office had a team in the 2018 Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10K on April 14. Pictured are T.R. Fluker, Steve Winter, Kenny Megginson, Murdock Snarr, and Arya, Murdock’s Samoyed who watched the run from the sidelines. Rounding out the team were Michelle Bolding and Dom Snyder. We also placed second in the “Engineer’s Challenge,” an informal competition among some local engineering firms that also raced.
In a team-building event at the 2018 Schnabel University Technical Workshop. eight teams discovered their inner artist and turned out brightly-colored paintings of superheroes. The 24″ x 36″ canvases were donated to our friends at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, where some would be displayed and others would be given to children to take home.
Thanks to all who participated and especially to Children’s Hospital, a positive force in the community and in the lives of the real superheroes: the children and families it serves. The art was delivered by Heather Baskin at right and Victoria Landrum (and Wonder Woman) next to her.
Our Glen Allen/Richmond office sponsored Bingo Night for veterans at the local VA Hospital in Richmond on Thursday, February 22. We supplied goodie bags, drinks, raffle and bingo prizes to help bring some cheer to hospital life for those who have given so much for our country! Thirteen Schnabel volunteers, including a few family members and client partners, served veterans throughout the night. Pictured (left to right) are Kyle Campbell, Jeff Sollinger and Robin Emanuele, Ellen and Randy Reaves, Alma and Kenny Megginson, Victoria Landrum, Heather Baskin, Craig Ponte, and Evan Morris. We are proud to support our veterans!
The Schnabel Engineering team proudly took second place out of 40 teams competing in the Giant Jenga Tournament sponsored by the ACE Mentor Program of Eastern Pennsylvania on February 15. Nate Young, Evan Binder, Karen Leddy and Emily Gibson of our West Chester office formed a steady-handed team, and Kirsten Wilde—a former ACE Mentor Program scholarship recipient—was a referee. Proceeds from the Giant Jenga Tournament will go to scholarships for high school students and ACE Alumni currently enrolled in school and focusing on an A-C-E related career path.
Founded in 2000, the ACE Mentor Program of Eastern Pennsylvania gives students from local high schools an exciting opportunity to learn more about potential careers in architecture, engineering and construction. ACE-EP works with 300 students from 30 area high schools in Philadelphia, and 150 students from Montgomery County.
