Engineering legend honored

As an engineering company headquartered in Greenville, we are honored to share this story about engineering also out of Greenville.

In an effort to bridge the gap between talent and opportunity, GE Gas Power announced it is establishing a historic annual scholarship to support underrepresented minorities and women on campus – the largest in the history of Clemson’s College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.

The scholarship, named the GE John Lammas Annual Scholarship, honors the engineering legend who was instrumental in changing jet travel and power generation during his 35 years at GE. Lammas passed away in April 2020.

In addition to an annual scholarship, GE Gas Power’s investment – totaling $1 million over three years – will establish two pilot programs within the Division of Inclusion and Equity designed to create pathways to college for middle and high school students.

This is great news for the engineering industry.
