inTeRnATionAl NEwS Working for Bechtel FAntA sAcko Electrical Engineer Working for a company that encourages its employees to set career goals and actually helps them achieve them is a great attribute for me. They even assign you a mentor! At Bechtel, everyone is willing to help. Senior engineers are eager to pass on their knowledge, which made my transition from Howard University very easy. There are plenty of opportunities: training, visits to job sites, field assignments and travel, just to name a few. Working at Bechtel allows me to continue to grow in the engineering field and expand my partnership with NSBE. I enjoy the work environment. It is fast-paced, positive, and I am excited about my work. ■ AnGeLisA Hicks Mechanical Engineer Bechtel has a host of business units across the globe, with projects in the farthest reaches of the world. However, I believe it is Bechtel’s diversity in its work force that truly makes it an international company. Here, in our Frederick (Md.) office, we have a rainbow of individuals, working in all echelons of business. It is our ability to work together towards a common good, despite our differences, that truly makes Bechtel an international company. ■ Neighbors Building Community N shiloh Baptist church and nsBe helped seminary students in kampala, uganda (above) get free software from Microsoft. 14 • 2009 • SBE World Headquarters was glad to lend a hand last year to its Alexandria, Va., neighbor, Shiloh Baptist Church. As part of the church’s Harambee Development International program, Shiloh is working with Virginia Union University to establish a seminary in Uganda’s capital city of Kampala. A black-owned company, Focus Management Incorporated, had donated seven computers to the seminary students, but the computers needed operating systems and other software. Shiloh’s senior pastor, the Rev. Lee A. Earl, reached out to NSBE Executive Director Carl B. Mack, who in turn reached out to Eve Lewis of Microsoft Corporation. Lewis got Microsoft to donate the software. To show its appreciation, NSBE will honor Lewis at the 35th Annual National Convention in Las Vegas, Nev., this year. “Your kindness has uplifted and will increase knowledge for those who were willing but unable to communicate through distance learning using technology,” the Rev. Earl and Shiloh Associate Pastor of Missions Yolanda Giles wrote to Mack in December. “We are so very grateful for your generosity. May God continue to bless you and your (organization) as he uses you as a conduit for the people of Uganda and throughout Africa. We look forward to continued partnership and fellowship in the years ahead.” ■ www.nsbe.org march/april
