Engineering Students Flying High with President Huddleston

By Jody Record, Campus Journal Editor
March 9, 2011

Amy Hunter got a little help with her senior design project that put her above the rest of her classmates. Literally. The civil engineering major took to the skies last week with President Mark Huddleston so she could view area parking lots from the air.

Her project involves assessing how much salt is being used in the industrial lots at Pease International Tradeport and how it is impacting the 2,135-acre Hodgson Brook Watershed.  

“Without the aerial view, I would have to drive around to each parking lot,” Hunter, a senior, says. “I tried that but it wasn’t working.”

Enter President Huddleston, who happens to own a TB-20 Trinidad that seats five, and welcomes any chance he gets to fly. The pair took off later Friday afternoon with fellow senior Chris Dorich, an environmental science major who was tasked with taking photographs. A few appear below.
