GeoStabilization International would like to recognize Robert Huber, a “two-time” summer intern and part-time employee, for being awarded the Marliave Scholarship from the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists. In being distinguished as the national association’s most outstanding student, Robert becomes their 2017 Marliave Scholar. The award’s criteria are demonstrated ability, scholarship, the potential for contributions to the profession, character, and activities in student/professional societies. We wish Robert the best of luck this school year as he finishes his Master of Science program in geological engineering at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
